Shortcuts keys of Computer.

When a user is doing any task on the computer, he uses the mouse for selecting any file, folder, program, or for selecting options for cut, copy, paste. Like if the user wants to copy and paste a word in any document, he will select the item/items by dragging the mouse then select options for cut, copy and paste that item/items. But mouse dragging takes too much time, so for saving time we have shortcut keys, we can use shortcut keys to perform different functions in just a few seconds without wasting much time.

For Example, I have given a task to complete within 20 minutes, of copying different pages from different folders and I am doing this by using a mouse, like going to the options then selecting copy or paste, it takes too much time with the mouse, but if I have knowledge of all shortcut keys, it will be easy and will be completed in less time. So we will get time to do extra work.
