Keyboard shortcuts are keys or combinations of keys that provide an alternate way to do something you’d typically do with a mouse.

Here are several common keyboard shortcuts:


Rename files:


  • F2 (Windows)


  • Return (Mac) couldn’t be any easier simply choose a new name for a file.


Toggle between programs:


  • Alt + Tab (Windows)


  • Command + Tab (Mac) is a must for multitaskers out there, this shortcut allows you to switch between apps.


Find a row in a spreadsheet:


  • Shift + Space (Windows and Mac). Great way to find a row in a spreadsheet.


Paste as plain text:


  • Ctrl + Shift + V (Windows)


  • Command + Shift + V (Mac) is a great way of copying and pasting and only the text appears not the complete web page.
