The Most Comprehensive Guide to Windows Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts are a great way to quickly open locations and implement actions. However, there are just so many of them, it’s often difficult to remember exactly which combination does what.


With that in mind; here’s a comprehensive list of keyboard shortcuts that I put together for my students and have now made available for you to download for free. The 195KB file is in PDF format and covers just about every key combination known to mankind (it does not include new keyboard shortcuts introduced specifically for Windows 10).

The beauty of being able to download the list in PDF format is that you can not only save it locally but also print it out and place it somewhere near the computer for quick reference.
