Keyboard shortcuts that pay back

Created: 5 Jan 2019 | Modified: 9 Jan 2018 | Importance: 6/10

3 weeks ago, I inactivated my touchpad to force myself to learn new keyboard shortcuts.

Below are the most useful ones I've found during these 3 weeks (I only included those faster than using the mouse).

In each category, I've sorted them from the most time-saving to the least.

The time spent skimming this page and picking a handful of new shortcuts should pay back many times over.

Most apps with tabs (Firefox, file navigator...)

Twitter

Anki

(Why not put your favorite shortcuts into it?)

I consider writing a love letter to Cherrytree, my general-purpose note-taking app, some day.
