A keyboard shortcut is a combination of keys on your keyboard that performs specific tasks or commands, such as pasting, copying and zooming. We give you ten time-saving keyboard shortcuts for Windows and Mac.

To use a keyboard shortcut, for example CTRL + Z to undo what you last wrote in the itslearning rich-text editor, press the CTRL key, hold it in and then press the Z key.
