Do you have difficulty in using the mouse? Or have you ever wished that you weren't so dependent on your mouse and thought you could work more efficiently by using the keyboard?

Discover how to get a full list of keyboard shortcuts, and learn and practice three ways of using your keyboard rather than your mouse.
