KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS

CLASS DESCRIPTION:  KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS WORKSHOP for iMacs and Laptops 

           Do you want to know how quickly you can undo a mistake when you are typing? Or would you like to learn a 2 or 3 key command to perform a direction to copy, cut or paste? It saves the motion of taking the pointer to the menu bar and using the drop-down menu to execute a command. In this workshop you will use three hand-out exercises to practice using the primary commands and hopefully the mind and hand will connect. 

Please indicate on your registration if you intend to bring your own laptop, or will be using the Club’s iMacs. 

INSTRUCTOR:  Jean Christiansen 

Dates & Time:  Tuesday - December 11, from 10 - 12 noon 

LOCATION:  Palm Ridge Rec Center - Room C 

FEE:  $5.00, payable by check to Computers West.  Due at class. 

SIGN UP for this CLASS:  Click on the Mac mouse (top right of this page).  Fill in registration form, indicate date of class, and submit.
