How to Find Keyboard Shortcuts    
Once you grasp the idea of keyboard shortcuts and an understanding of the Apple command key, you should start looking for keyboard shortcuts. To find keyboard shortcuts can look at the menus of different applications. For example in Word, if I click on any of the menus on the right it tells you what the keyboard shortcuts are. Now if nothing is there, then there is no keyboard shortcut for that task. Now let’s look at file, project gallery. Now this up arrow means the shift key, so if I push shift, apple, P then I’ll get the project gallery window. So that up arrow is another icon for you to remember refers to the shifts key. So the next time you are in an application and you go to the menu to do something take a look and see if there is a keyboard shortcut for that task. If there is, try using it and try to get accustom to using it. The more times you do, the more automated it will become! So lets look again, to print, apple p, to save apple s, to close, apple w. You will find that a lot of the shortcuts are the same in different application, which only makes it easier to learn and retain!
