Windows shortcuts

When I was in high school I studied computers, knew how to use shortcuts, make programs, magazine covers …….. you name it I could do it. I wouldn’t know what windows it was because I don’t know what it was before Windows XP! so over the years I have totally forgotten how to do anything, couldn’t remember shortcuts when typing out my assignments. Today I finally had some free time and googled windows shortcuts and found what it was I was looking for. I now have printed them out and placed them on my wall to refer to when doing my assignments.

Here is a small snippet of the most used ones
