Why should we use Keyboard shortcuts everyday?

Being a pro at keyboard shortcuts doesn’t just boost your Pro STACKer factor, there are several actual reasons why you should use shortcuts more often.

Be a master at multitasking when needed

Sometimes, multitasking is required in life. For example, when you are coding, writing reports or doing some research, it’s common to end up juggling dozens of open tabs at once. Knowing the right shortcuts allows you to easily find the tab you need in less than a second.

Be more efficient and save a lot of time

It’s no secret that using shortcuts makes you more efficient at doing certain tasks on your computer, because you’re not unnecessarily reaching for a mouse all the time. Once you learn the lot of them, you’ll definitely notice a boost to productivity.

Be healthier

Ever heard about RSI (Repetitive Syndrome Injury)? It’s an injury that’s caused by doing repetitive task and many people develop RSI in their mouse hand. Dorsiflexion is often to blame, which is when you rest the heel of your palm on the desk and raise your fingers to use the mouse. You may be able to cut down on your mouse usage by using keyboard shortcuts instead. By alternating mouse and keyboard usage you can reduce the risks of RSI.
