Top 10 keyboard shortcuts everyone should know

Top 10 keyboard shortcuts everyone should know


Using keyboard shortcuts can greatly increase your productivity, reduce repetitive strain, and help keep you focused. For example, highlighting text with the keyboard and pressing Ctrl + C is much faster than taking your hand from the keyboard, highlighting the text using the mouse, clicking copy from the file menu, and then putting your hand back in place on the keyboard. 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 redo 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 moving forward.

Tip: Press Ctrl + Tab to switch between tabs in a program.

Tip: Adding the Shift key to Alt + Tab or Ctrl + Tab will move backwards. For example, if you are pressing Alt + Tab and pass the program you want to switch to, press Alt + Shift + Tab to move backwards to that program.

Tip: Windows Vista and 7 users can also press the Windows Key + Tab to switch through open programs in a full screenshot of the Window.

Ctrl + Back space and Ctrl + Left or Right arrow

Pressing Ctrl + Backspace will delete a full word at a time instead of a single character.

Holding down the Ctrl key while pressing the left or right arrow will 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 + Shift and then press the left or right arrow key to move one word at a time in that direction while highlighting each word.

Ctrl + S

While working on a document or other file in almost every program pressing Ctrl + S will save that file. This shortcut key should be used frequently anytime you’re working on anything important.

Ctrl + Home or Ctrl + End

Move the cursor to the beginning or end of a document.

Ctrl + P

Print the page being viewed. For example, the document in Microsoft Word or the web page in your Internet browser.

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. If you press Shift and the Space bar the page will go up a page at a time.

Tip: If you are using the space bar to go down one page at a time press the Shift key and space bar to go up one page at a time.

pichi pichi


Pichi Pichi is a dessert made out of grated cassava and sugar coated with grated coconut, this gelatinous treat is a real simple recipe for a rice cake it contains few ingredients, preparation is next to nothing and you don’t even need an oven as this is cooked in a steamer.

I remember when I was younger this is one of the things my mom made when there are special occasions, it goes well as a dessert with popular Filipino dishes like Spaghetti,Pancit and Barbecue but having said that there’s no reason not to serve this without those.


how to make pichi pichi


2 cups cassava, grated
1 cup sugar
2 1/4 cups water
1/2 tsp lye water
3 stalks pandan leaves, tied in a knot
1 cup freshly grated coconut (if not available please use Alternative Coating)
drop of green food colour (optional)

Alternative Coating

1 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup coconut cream


1. In a sauce pan add water and pandan leaves, bring it to a boil then simmer for 15 minutes. Set aside and let it cool. Once liquid have cooled down remove the pandan leaves and measure 2 cups of liquid (the remaining should be roughly 2 cups due to evaporation), if the liquid is lesser than 2 cups adjust it with water.
2. In a mixing bowl add grated cassava, sugar, lye water, water and food colour if using then mix well until consistency is even.
3. Place in moulds, individual and large will do. Place then in a steamer.
4. Steam for 1 hour or until the colour turns translucent.
5. Remove from steamer and let it cool, once cooled down place in the fridge for at least an hour.
6. If you are not using fresh coconut do this step. While waiting for pichi pichi to cool place coconut cream in a cup then microwave until hot but not boiling. Mix together desiccated coconut and coconut cream then set aside.
7. Remove from moulds, if using a larger mould slice it into bite size pieces.
8. Roll the each piece over the grated coconut or rehydrated desiccated coconut, do it with the remaining pichi pichi.
