Short cut When using the short cut "CTRL+SHIFT with an arrow key" do I need to let go of the CTRL+SHIFT keys each time the arrow key is pressed? Sincerely, PD

    Thank you!

    Also: I have an Acer Extensa 5620

    I have never had to release the ctrl-shift keys before on any other computer but now, when I speak to Acer, after they having had my laptop twice (2!!!) to fix this problem, they tell me more or less that it's the way it's supposed to work - I feel that they are not completely sincere. Has anyone else had this problem and who is right me or them? This is a short cut I commonly (on any other computer) use ALL the time while writing or "spread sheeting".

    FYI: When I plug in an external key board I can continue to press down ctrl-shift and select/deselect words or paragraphs at a time to my hearts content. But then again, having an external key board in part defeats the purpose of having a laptop.

Letter between c and b wont work! its the paste code key also and I dont recall using it to paste anything Whmat's your problem?


Of course, it wont work because you used a wrong short cut key. The correct short cut command for copying is press the control C simultaneously then for pasting it, it should control V simultaneously. Try it again using the right short cut command. Good luck!

Top 10 keyboard shortcuts everyone should know


Using keyboard shortcuts can often cut the time it takes to do something on a computer in half. Below are our top 10 keyboard shortcuts we recommend everyone memorize and use.
Ctrl + C or Ctrl + Insert
Copy the highlighted text or selected item.
Ctrl + V or Shift + Insert
Paste the text or object that's in the clipboard.
Ctrl + Z and Ctrl + Y
Undo any change. For example, if you cut text, pressing this will undo it. This can also often be pressed multiple times to undo multiple changes. Pressing Ctrl + Y would re-do the undo.
Ctrl + F
Open the Find in any program. This includes your Internet browser to find text on the current page.
Alt + Tab or Alt + Esc
Quickly switch between open programs.
F1
Open help for the program you're in.
Ctrl + P
Print what's currently being viewed in programs such as Microsoft Word or your Internet browser.
Ctrl + Left arrow / Right arrow
Move the cursor one word at a time instead of one character at a time. If you wanted to highlight one word at a time you can hold down Ctrl + Alt and then press the left or right arrow key to move one word at a time in that direction while highlighting each word.
Ctrl + Home / End
Move the cursor to the beginning or end of a document.
Page Up / Space bar and Page Down
Pressing either the page up or page down key will move that page one page at a time in that direction. When browsing the Internet pressing the space bar will also move the page down one page at a time.

How can I delete more than 1 photo at a time from photo starter 3.0


Select the first pic by selecting it with your mouse, then press the ctrl key and hold it in. After you press that key, add the other pics you want to delete by placing your cursor over them and clicking each one.

When you release the ctrl key, all will stay highlighted. Press the delete button. Make sure that you don't click anything else before pressing delete. If you highlight something by accident, click it again to deselect it. Don't click on anything once the ctrl button is released, or everything will deselect.

If you would like to delete a row, or an entire page, select the first pic, and then select the last picture you want to delete. Push the shift key and all of the files will highlight. Release shift, and push delete.

These short cuts don't just work in Photoshop. They work in most PC based programs and folders to select text, files, etc. Mac has the same short cuts, the keys are just called different names.

Short cuts make things so much easier, you will love them once you learn how to do it. So don't give up if it takes a few tries. Anytime you drop a menu, there are a letter(s) and sometimes numbers next to the action such as "cut" or "paste".

These are the keys to use as a short cut instead of going to the menu. For instance, instead of going to edit and selecting copy, just press ctrl and then C, and it will copy whatever you have selected. Wonderful, yes? This is true for Mac and PC's

I hope this helped, you can let me know by rating the answer. You can also leave follow up questions or comments. Thanks for visiting Fixya.

Keyboard Shortcut for Windows


Getting used to using your keyboard exclusively and leaving your mouse behind will make you much more efficient at performing any task on any Windows system. I use the following keyboard shortcuts every day:
Windows key + R = Run menu
This is usually followed by: cmd = Command Prompt iexplore + "web address" = Internet Explorer compmgmt.msc = Computer Management dhcpmgmt.msc = DHCP Management dnsmgmt.msc = DNS Management services.msc = Services eventvwr = Event Viewer dsa.msc = Active Directory Users and Computers dssite.msc = Active Directory Sites and Services Windows key + E = Explorer
ALT + Tab = Switch between windows
ALT, Space, X = Maximize window
CTRL + Shift + Esc = Task Manager
Windows key + Break = System properties
Windows key + F = Search
Windows key + D = Hide/Display all windows
CTRL + C = copy
CTRL + X = cut
CTRL + V = paste
Also don't forget about the "Right-click" key next to the right Windows key on your keyboard. Using the arrows and that key can get just about anything done once you've opened up any program.
