Hi Robotstar5,
This is the beauty of the forum the things we learn almost daily,the hardest part is trying to remember what we have learnt a week or so later.

There are lots of "click saving" shortcuts Very Happy

My common ones are Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V for copy and paste instead of right click and select copy move the cursor then right click and select paste.

Here's a list of Windows shortcuts - https://www.thewindowsclub.com/keyboard-shortcuts-windows-10

Another useful resource is the Character map in Windows accessories, some common ones are:

Alt + 0188 ¼
Alt + 0189 ½
Alt + 0176 ° (degrees)
Alt + 0178 ² (handy for cable sizes)

and Alt + 0169 ©️ so I can copyright this post Very Happy
