I love working with younger librarians (Owen, Jennie, Connie) because they so often tell me a quick way to do something on a computer that I didn’t know. One of those things is keyboard commands. For example: if you want to find a word in a document you are typing and you hold the Control key down and tap the F key, a box comes up where you type the word and hit the enter key and it goes directly to the word. If you want to print and can’t find a symbol of a printer or the word print underlined on the screen, you can always hold the CTRL key down and hit the P key and print the document you are viewing. To copy a part of a document you can highlight what you want to copy and hold the CTRL key and hit the C button. You get the idea but for more keyboard commands, you can go to Google and just type in Keyboard Commands or see the list below for more ideas.

• CTRL+C: Copy
• CTRL+X: Cut
• CTRL+V: Paste
• CTRL+Z: Undo
• CTRL+B: Bold
• CTRL+U: Underline
• CTRL+I: Italic
