Does /qa/ use any keyboard shortcuts for improved productivity? If not, you totally should!!

Some of my favorites are:
Win + Print Screen = Outputs a screenshot to Pictures/Screenshots
Alt + Right/Left Arrow = Forward/Reverse history
Middle Click Link = Opens link in new window
Middle Click Drag = Scroll without wheel
Middle Click Tab = Closes tab
Win + Tab = Task view (shows windows on each monitor, and allows access to multiple desktops)
Ctrl + Tab = Move right one tab over in browser
Ctrl + Shift + Tab = Move left one tab over in browser
Ctrl + W = Close active tab

I use most of those except for
>Win + Print Screen = Outputs a screenshot to Pictures/Screenshots
Since I have 3 monitors and use ShareX shortcuts instead to capture regions or specific windows. For which I use pic related. It's pretty convenient.
>Alt + Right/Left Arrow = Forward/Reverse history
Since my mouse has buttons for that

and then
>Ctrl + Tab = Move right one tab over in browser
>Ctrl + Shift + Tab = Move left one tab over in browser

Since I didn't actually know of that one.

I use a lot of them. Some off the top of my head:
¥ General:
1. Win + e = Opening up file explorer
2. Tab = Next item in list
3. Shift + Tab = Previous item in list (applies to Alt + Tab too)
4. Shift + Del = Permanently deletes selection
5. Alt + Enter = Opens up properties window for selection
¥ Browser:
1. Ctrl + t = Open new tab
2. Ctrl + w = Close current tab
3. f6 = Highlights address bar (at least with the first press)
4. Ctrl + E = Highlights address bar with default search engine prompt
5. Ctrl + page up/down = similar to Ctrl + (Shift) Tab
6. Ctrl + click = open link in new tab
¥ Text:
1. Home = Cursor to start of line
2. Ctrl + home = Cursor to start of text
3. End = Cursor to end of line
4. Ctrl + end = Cursor to end of text
5. Ctrl + left/right = Cursor to previous/next word (don't exactly know what defines a "word")
6. 1-5 + Shift = Selects text with respect to the cursor movement
7. Ctrl + backspace/del = Backspaces/deletes word

>Win + Print Screen = Outputs a screenshot to Pictures/Screenshots

Don't use this because too lazy to go to Pictures/Screenshots. So... I press printscreen, open up paint, paste clipboard, crop what I need (2 monitors), 'save as'...
>Alt + Right/Left Arrow = Forward/Reverse history
Same as >>74062
>Middle Click Link = Opens link in new window
You mean new tab? It doesn't open up in a new window for me...
>Middle Click Tab = Closes tab
I use keyboard shortcut instead, since I don't have to move my mouse that way.
>Win + Tab = Task view (shows windows on each monitor, and allows access to multiple desktops)
Have never really felt the need to use this nor multiple desktops.

Having side buttons on my mouse is the best. Can use them to go back and foreward much easier on webpages

 No.74079

you guys have all reminded me that my mouse also has the forward back buttons. I've had it for almost a year and haven't used those things since I completely forgot they existed

Mostly Ctrl + W/T/A/F/Z/C/V/click and Alt + Tab.

It's more of a physical keyboard shortcut but I keymapped to switch the functions of the Caps Lock button with the space button, although the space button is the biggest button on the keyboard it feels much more of an improvement to hit space with the left little finger everytime I want to seperate words.

I use vim-like browser extensions so I dont have to use my mouse unless I want to.
