Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows XP, Vista and 7

Keyboard ShortcutsFollowing a recent post, I had a reader ask if I could provide some resources on where to find and how to use keyboard shortcuts. Ironically, following that comment, Steve over at Scoroncocolo had posted a very thorough article about Windows 7 Keyboard Shortcuts.  If your operating system is Windows 7, then you need to take a look at some of the cool shortcuts that Steve will show you [ HERE ] .

Keyboard shortcuts are combinations of two or more keys that, when pressed, can be used to perform a task that would typically require a mouse or other pointing device. Keyboard shortcuts can make it easier to interact with your computer, saving you time and effort as you work with Windows and other programs.

Granted, you may not have yet graduated to Windows 7 and may still be using Windows Vista or XP.  For your convenience, I have listed some great resources on the keyboard shortcuts that are available to each operating system. My favorite keyboard shortcut is “F1” .  You can press that key in nearly any application you are using and get an education.  What is your favorite keyboard shortcut?

  1. Rick,
    Bit slow in getting to this, but I want to thank you for your support. Getting mentioned on such a top drawer site as this one is a real delight.

    … my favorite ‘keyboard shortcut’ is Ctrl+Z (undo).


  2. Thanks, Rick, for pointing to my blog post on Windows 7 keyboard shortcuts. You’ve got an amazing Website going, Rick. You manage to convey a tremendous amount of useful information while at the same time helping struggling Tech writers like me find a wider audience. And that’s why Whatsonmypc is going continue to be a big part of What’s on MY PC. One of my favorite keyboard shortcuts is ctrl + d which helps you bookmark a Website. I strongly recommend to anyone reading this that they use this keyboard shortcut to add Whatsonmypc to their list of favorite Websites.


  3. “F1” is surely the best solution in windows 🙂
    Your resources on the keyboard shortcuts for Windows 7 is great one. I have recently installed Windows 7 and not that much used to its environment.

    Good help!
    – J.
