Increase Productivity with Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts are one of the easiest ways to increase your productivity, and many can be used across applications. Below are a few of the shortcuts I use daily; although they may seem basic to some, it amazes me how many people don't know these shortcuts. See Wikipedia's Table of Keyboard Shortcuts for even more.

Shortcut Function Windows Mac
Show Desktop (min. all windows) Win()+ D F11
Select all text Ctrl + A Cmd + A
Copy selection Ctrl + C Cmd + C
Paste selection Ctrl + V Cmd + V
Undo Ctrl + Z Cmd + Z
Redo (undo the undo) Ctrl + Y Cmd + Y
Close file or window Ctrl + W Cmd + W

Shortcuts keys should be held down simultaneously. The Control (Ctrl), Windows () and Command (Cmd) keys are located on the bottom row of most keyboards.
