Hi,

Normally we are using many shortcut keys on MS office and other software and able to find the details of those shortcut keys easily on their help topics.

But I couldn't find much about Windows hotkeys which help to make things easy and please tell me how many windows hotkeys are available for Windows 7 and what are their uses?

Hi,

Windows 7 contains many new keyboard shortcuts that are vague for a new User.

This includes more than 200 keyboard shortcuts containing about all the keyboard shortcuts that are offered in Windows 7 and its default programs.

Uses:

1. They can make it easier to interrelate with your computer.

2. Saving time and exertion.

3. Most programs also offer accelerator keys that can make it easier to work with set of choices and other commands obtainable in the program for users.

Thanks.
