Many people working on the computer don't use keyboard shortcuts, although they save up to 64 hrs of work/year. And that's not the only perk

Many people working on the computer in their daily jobs don’t use keyboard shortcuts (other than copy and paste). Although, according to a calculation by Brainscape, you could save 64 hours of work per year! This means a productivity increase of 3.3%!

And that’s not all! Here are the three main benefits of using keyboard shortcuts:

They save you time!

Using keyboard shortcuts can make you way more productive and save you, as mentioned above, several hours (or 8 days) of work per year! The movement from your keyboard to your mouse might only take a couple of seconds, but the frequency let it add up quickly.


They keep you focused!

Switching between your keyboard and mouse not only costs time but also makes you lose focus. Every time you switch devices and change the type of movement, it interrupts your workflow.


They keep you healthy!

Using your mouse a lot increases your risk of RSI (Repetitive Syndrome Injury), which you get from doing too many repetitive tasks - such as hundreds of mouse clicks per day. So give your fingers a little variety and use your keyboard.
