    Keyboard shortcuts are useful for various things like Ctrl/Cmd + C to copy text and Ctrl/Cmd + V to paste text as they save a bit of time. There are a lot of keyboard shortcuts, and they differ from machines like on PC and Mac, and even on software applications.

    For me, my favorite keyboard shortcut is Shift + Home and Shift + End for PC, because they make it easier to select a line of text, which is quicker for me than dragging my mouse across a line of text. I most often use Shift + Home instead of Shift + End to select a single line of text, because I type from right to left, so I would select from right to left. I also find it useful to hold down the shift button and using the up and down arrow keys during my selection, if I want to select more lines.

    I also like the shift + home and shift + end (depends where the cursor is pointing) for the same reason. Also, I love the alt + F4. Helps you to immediately close window specially if someone barged into your room and you're checking out something that is not supposed to be seen by other people. KEKEKEKE

    I usually use CTRL + F the most to search for key words on a web page.

    Alt + tab would be a game changer for someone like me.

    The only "shortcut" I can think of is Caps Lock. I is very useful when wanting to use a lot of Caps.

    Good old CTRL + A, CTRL + C, CTRL + V are my most used keyboard shortcuts considering the fact that they can save so much time while i am trying let's say link webpages and transfer information to my notepad. I have also started using Shift + Home and Shift + End, so thank you for a heads up @Snowy!

    CTRL+W which closes an application. I used it very often when closing my browser tabs.
