This key is even more mysterious than that of Windows for the novice user. The nice thing is ALT methods that are common (or should be) to all PC operating systems with graphical environment: I have tested all the Windows and various UNIX derivatives and, with its peculiarities, always work and similarly.
- ALT + TAB. Essential: with it we will change programs without having to be clicking with the mouse on the taskbar. In Windows, something similar - even more uncomfortable in my opinion - is achieved by Windows + Tab and Enter key.
NOTE: The tab is the key to the left of the 'Q'.
- ALT + F4. Close the window (ending the program) is currently active. If there is no in this situation or all programs are closed, it displays the menu shutdown / reboot
- ALT + spacebar. This combination of management menu is the active window, maximize, restore, minimize, move and resize. The latter action is perhaps the least easy to do with the keyboard, but it is very useful in those cases in which a window is so huge (I usually do that smacks sites mentioned above) that we can not move it or resize it: after Alt + click and select "size", we must select one of 8 directions with the arrow keys (also worth combinations such as "up-right." The cursor will move to the chosen edge of the window and we can resize it. A Having established to our taste, a press of ENTER will return the normal program control.
- ALT to dry. Press individually give us control over the program's menu bar (which often contain the "File", "Edit", "Help", etc). Using the arrow keys can move through the menu easily, with ENTER. One or two taps on the ESC will allow us to overcome this situation.
- ALT + underlined letter. If we look at many of the titles of menus, buttons and others have underlined see that one of his letters. Is this it for? Neither more nor less than for direct access to these functions: Press Alt plus any underlined letter you see and you can check. NOTE: Depending on how you set Windows, you might underlined letters for the menu bar may not appear until you press ALT to dry.
- ALT + ENTER. If we have selected a file in Explorer, this shortcut brings up its properties. And as a curiosity, in Windows Media Player the same combination allows us to switch between normal mode and full screen mode.
The Control key
Apart from the combinations that you know or should know the whole world ...
- CONTROL + X: Cut
- CONTROL + C: Copy
- CONTROL + V: Paste
- CONTROL + Z: Undo (undo)
- CONTROL + Y: Redo, although in some programs is Shift + Ctrl + Z.
- CONTROL + P: Print.
- CONTROL + S: Save File.
- CONTROL + O: Open File.
- CONTROL + F: Find text, although some soplagaitas has "translated" this shortcut in some programs such as Notepad, becoming CONTROL + B Castilian versions.
- CONTROL + A / CTRL + E: Select All. Another absurd consequence of the above phenomenon: as in programs to open a file is translated CONTROL + A and it is usually the combination assigned to "select all" in these cases the latter is changed to CTRL + E. A mess, come on.
In addition, each program has its own combinations, worth learning which use more frequently. In the most powerful, can be customized and / or associated with "macros" that automate complex and repetitive tasks.
The bar tab and espaciodora
In dialog boxes, alerts, menus and the like, the ENTER key is equivalent to OK / OK, whereas corresponds to Cancel ESC / Cancel. How can press other buttons with the keyboard? It can be done in two ways: either with ALT plus its underlined letter by selecting it and pressing the spacebar. The bar also serves to activate casillitas square (those containing a small 'V').
And I forgot to move between different sections of a menu or dialog box, you use the Tab key, allowing us to move generally from top to bottom and from left to right. To move in the opposite direction, simply use Shift plus the same tab.
What if we change tabs in case there? We can do it with Control + Tab (normal sense) or Shift + Ctrl + Tab (reverse). A good place to rehearse all this is the Display Properties menu (Start | Settings | Control Panel | Display).
The combination CONTROL + TAB (or SHIFT reverse) also allow us to switch between windows in those programs that contain within them, such as Microsoft Word, Abobe Photoshop or the Opera browser (technically called MDI, Multiple Document Interface). In fact, it is the function equivalent to ALT + TAB, but with internal windows. And in the same way, CONTROL + F4 will close each of these subwindows.
Function keys (F-)
Since the advent of graphical environments, its usefulness has been reduced to the background: Many still remember those paper templates cheat sheet containing the functions of WordPerfect for MS-DOS.
Nevertheless, they still have some useful tasks. Apart from the specific to each application (essential to F12 in the Opera browser, for example) and we've seen in F10 and F4, we have three reviews:
- F1. With this access help for the active program.
- F2. With a file selected, we will rename it. This works in both Windows Explorer and in some other program (Nero, for example).
- F3. Access the file search. The advantage it has over the combination Windows + F is that, previously we have moved to a specific folder in Windows Explorer, press F3 will allow us to narrow the search to that folder and its subfolders (Windows + F by default for all local hard drives).
Almost as anecdotes (for its lack of utility), we can note that F5 is equivalent to "update" and F10 (to dry) "focuses on" the menu bar in the same way as the ALT key.
These shortcuts work in Windows, these shortcuts are only useful when you have a keyboard and mouse do not have one handy.
