Shortcut keys and Commands for Windows

Shortcut keys and Commands

Many of my friends ask to me how could I work so fast and they ask this because they don’t know many shortcut commands or they don’t use it. My simple answer to them is shortcuts, but sometimes they ask me what shortcuts are they and I have no answer because I cannot name each and every shortcut at a time. Before few time someone asked me that I should go ahead and post it on my blog and I said ok because I found it good and useful for my blog and I feel happy when I am giving some good content over my blog for my readers.

Before one month back I posted a list of few very useful network commands now I am here with some shortcut with details for day to day usage. Hope It would be useful for all.

It took me almost 2 hour to write this post as it was very difficult to get from my hundreds of commands which one is useful for all.
