Functions

Ctrl+F
Find. This opens the find dialog in most applic­ations to search for text — I’ve even seen it work in some applic­ations that didn’t have a Find option in their menus.
F3
Find next.
Shift+F3
Find previous.
Ctrl+O
Open.
Ctrl+S
Save.
Ctrl+N
New document.
Ctrl+P
Print.
Alt
Activate applic­ation’s menu bar. You can use the arrow keys to select a menu option and the Enter key to activate it.
Alt+F
Open File menu.
Alt+E
Open Edit menu.
Alt+V
Open View menu.
These function keys are common to most text-e­diting applic­ations. If you use them in your web browser, you’ll open your browser’s associated dialogs.
 

Moving the Cursor

Home
Move cursor to beginning of current line.
End
Move cursor to end of current line.
Ctrl+Home
Move cursor to top of the text entry field.
Ctrl+End
Move cursor to bottom of the text entry field.
Page Up
Move cursor up a frame.
Page Down
Move cursor down a frame.
The Ctrl key can also be combined with the Home and End keys.

Editing

Ctrl+C, Ctrl+I­nsert
Copy selected text.
Ctrl+X, Shift+­Delete
Cut selected text.
Ctrl+V, Shift+­Insert
Paste text at cursor.
Ctrl+Z
Undo.
Ctrl+Y
Redo.
You can really speed up text-e­diting by using the Ctrl keyboard shortcuts to copy and paste text.

Formatting

Ctrl+B
Bold.
Ctrl+I
Italic.
Ctrl+U
Underline.
Formatting shortcuts only work if the applic­ation or website you’re using supports text format­ting. If you have text selected, the shortcut will apply the formatting to your selected text. If you don’t have text selected, the shortcut will toggle the associated formatting option.
 

Combine with the Shift key to select text.

Shift+Left or Right Arrow Keys
Select characters one at a time.
Shift+Up or Down Arrow Keys
Select lines one at a time.
Shift+­Ctr­l+Left or Right Arrow Key
Select words – keep pressing the arrow keys to select additional words.
Shift+­Ctrl+Up or Down Arrow Keys
Select paragr­aphs.
Shift+Home
Select the text between the cursor and the beginning of the current line.
Shift+End
Select the text between the cursor and the end of the current line.
Shift+­Ctr­l+Home
Select the text between the cursor and the beginning of the text entry field.
Shift+­Ctr­l+End
Select the text between the cursor and the end of the text entry field.
Shift+Page Down
Select a frame of text below the cursor.
Shift+Page Up
Select a frame of text above the cursor.
Ctrl+A
Select all text.
You can use several of these shortcuts to fine-tine your selected text. For example, you could press Shift+End to select the text to the end of the current line, and then press Shift+Down to also select the line below it.

After selecting text, you can start typing immedi­ately to replace the text – you don’t have to press Delete first.
