The term “life hack” refers to a set of skills, shortcuts and novelty methods employed to increase an individual’s level of productivity. One of the most basic and easy-to-use life hacks is utilizing your most useful keyboard shortcuts. You can greatly increase productivity, more than you might have guessed with just your keyboard. It’s already a medical fact that using the mouse less often can reduce painful strain on muscles, joints and nerves.
I already know some of the most used keyboard shortcuts. For example, I’m constantly using “Ctrl + C” and “Ctrl + V” to cut and paste. But, there are so many more of these kinds of shortcuts. MashGeek has put together a nifty keyboard shortcuts infographic that features many of the time-saving keyboard facts and shortcuts which will help increase your productivity as well as keep computer-related injuries to a minimum.

Alt + Tab is my most used shortcut (hands down) but it looks like even I’ve been missing out on some good ones. Thanks David!
