Computer Shortcut keys:

Computer shortcut keys provide an easier and usually quicker method for navigating and using computer software programs. Shortcut keys usually consist of an Alt key, Ctrl, and/or Shift key in conjunction with a single letter. The de facto standard for listing a shortcut is listing the modifier key, a plus symbol, and the single character. Or in other words, “ALT+S” means that you need to press the ‘Alt’ key and while continuing to hold the ‘Alt’ key, you need to press  the ‘ S’ key to operate the shortcut.
