Ransomware is a type of malware which restricts access to the computer system that it infects, and demands a ransom paid to the creator(s) of the malware in order for the restriction to be removed. Some forms of ransomware encrypt files on the system’s hard drive, while some may simply lock the system and display messages intended to coax the user into paying.

Keyboard Shortcuts – a Helpful Tool

Imagine this: you have spent hours working on an important Excel spreadsheet and your mouse freezes. You don’t want to lose all your work and you must save it, but are uncertain precisely how to do it without your trusty mouse. At this time, you may choose keyboard shortcuts and not just for another mouse.

Keyboard Shortcuts

In computing, a keyboard shortcut is a sequence or combination of keystrokes on a computer keyboard which invokes commands in software. Some keyboard shortcuts require the user to press a single key or a sequence of keys one after the other. Other keyboard shortcuts require pressing and holding several keys simultaneously. Keyboard shortcuts may depend on the keyboard layout (localization).

We do a lot of typing, (or at least our processors do). So when you came across this list of keyboard shortcuts you automatically thought it would be a great thing to share with others. These have saved us a ton of time.

Mastering with the keyboard shortcuts does not only enhance the navigation speed of the user, it also avoids wrist fatigue and you can become a keyboard expert in this process. Now I will introduce some of our frequently used keyboard shortcut key combination.

CUT

Keyboard Command: Control (Ctrl) + X

The Cut command is used to remove text or images from the screen you are currently working on. “CUT” moves the information to your virtual clipboard, where it is stored until it is overwritten by the next “cut” or “copy” command.

COPY

Keyboard Shortcuts copy

Keyboard Command: Control (Ctrl) + C

The COPY command is used for just that – it copies the text or image you have selected and stores is on your virtual clipboard, until it is overwritten by the next “cut” or “copy” command.

PASTE

Keyboard Shortcuts paste

Keyboard Command: Control (Ctrl) + V

The PASTE command is used to place the information that you have stored on your virtual clipboard in the location that you have placed your mouse cursor.

Here are shortcuts work with all the Windows applications when use.

1.Win+1, 2, 3 etc. are the shortcuts which launch every program present in the taskbar. It helps in keeping most of the recently used programs in the beginning of the taskbar so that you can open these programs one after another. This is also available in Vista.

2.Win+Alt+1, 2, 3 etc. opens the jump list in the taskbar for every program. Using arrow keys will enable in navigating the jump key options for opening.

3.Win+T command cycles through the taskbar programs. This command is similar to mouse hovering over the taskbar items which can be launched by pressing enter or the spacebar.

4.Win+Home will minimize all the open programs except the currently used one.

5.Win+B will go to the system tray which is very useful in launching any system tray program without the use of the mouse.

6.Win+Up/Down command will maximize/restore the currently opened window. Just like clicking the middle of the top right buttons available on any program window.

7.Alt+Esc key works like the alt+tab but it also switches between the windows according to their launching order.

8.Win+pause/break open the system properties window. It is helpful in case you want to see the computer name or system details.
