Programming Improvement 5 – Learn the editor’s keyboard shortcuts

Today I was doing some repetitive work that had me switching back and forth between the keyboard and mouse.

Besides being physically annoying, it was mentally disruptive.

So, I looked to see if there were any useful keyboard shortcuts for those tasks.  When I found them, I added them to a list (a Word document on my desktop).  I’ll keep adding to this list, as I find other useful keyboard shortcuts.

To get the shortcuts firmly in my memory, I’ll add a ‘review shortcut list’ task to my regular schedule.

 

Today’s improvement: Save time and your train of thought by learning and using the keyboard shortcuts of the editor.
