Learning and using keyboard shortcuts in your favorite programs have three benefits:
1. They speed up tasks
- instead of time spent search the menu bar for the right button to click, a keyboard shortcut accomplishes that task with just a few clicks.
2. They improve your workflow
- keyboard shortcuts have helped me establish good file management habits. A simple Ctrl+S (to save the presentation) has saved me countless hours of having to recreate a file after that inevitable computer crash.
3. They open up new possibilities
