  • KeyRocket

    Commercial Windows Website

    KeyRocket is the best way to master keyboard shortcuts. It's Windows software that recommends shortcuts while you work where it matters.

For instance, to copy something to the clipboard, you might first go to the ‘Edit’ menu and then click ‘Copy’. If you were to do this while KeyRocket is running in the background, it would notify you that you could have alternatively pressed ‘Ctrl+C’ on your keyboard. And that’s just the beginning! KeyRocket can teach you over 1,200 shortcuts for Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
