Wouldn't it be great if you could become faster at using a computer?

I spent a decent amount of time to improve this in order to do my work more efficiently.

I really believe this is something where you can invest some time now, to save a lot later on.

This note contains the tactics that helped me become faster.


linkImproving Typing Speed

The average typing speed is around 40 WPM (Words per minute), if trained someone could go to 120 WPM or even faster.

If you type a lot like me, chances are it's going to make you more productive if you improve your typing speed.

It can make you faster at writing content or emails, doing research or coding.


linkUse Shortcuts

If you want to become quicker at using a computer, one of the best things you could do is learning shortcuts of the OS you're using as well as those of the programs that you frequently use.

I use an Elgato Stream Deck as well, it allows me to map complex shortcuts to this device.


linkShortcuts you definitely want to learn:

Switching between windows and moving them around

Copy, Cut, Paste

Closing windows

Opening a URL in a new tab with middle mouse click

CTRL + Backspace for removing a whole word

Selecting files and or text
