Keyboard shortcuts !

Recommended Posts

I want to add some keyboard shortcuts to the ¨Tips for Linux Starters¨. There are so many of them, so I´m going to list only my very favorite ones.Please add yours HERE below, so that I can make a selection to be placed in the tips. Thanks for your input. :)Ctrl+F1 to Ctrl+F5 = to change the desktops I am using at the same timeCtrl+r = to refresh Mozilla or GaleonF9 = to get mail in EvolutionCtrl+r = to reply a mail in EvolutionCtrl+Enter = send mail in EvolutionI do know that for us Linuxers it is hard to be moderate, but please do try to limit the number of shortcuts you post to [font="Arial"][size=7][u][b]5[/b][/u] [/size][/font]B) Bruno

:rolleyes: For lefthanders with arthritis one click and hit enter is easier than a double click. Only works well for leftys unless you can get a lefty keyboard.OK it's a piece of useless information but if you've ever tried a double click on a cold morning you'll know exactly what I mean.Joy

Hi it¨s me again, with some more keyboard shortcuts, looks like you can all easily do without, but I love them:Alt+F4 = close window ( in general ! )F11 = fullscreen ( in Mozilla browser)Ctrl+w = close tab ( in mozilla browser )ctrl+d = bookmark page ( in mozilla browser )Ctrl+s = save ( in OpenOffice.org, press it from time to time if you don´t want to be retyping your text all the time ! )Looks like I´m an oldfashon guy :) , if really nobody is using the shortcuts anymore, ¨the times they are a changin´¨:) Bruno

:unsure: I use the keyboard a lot, I'll try to make a list of shortcuts sometime. I'm pretty busy at the moment, throwing windows and penguins out of all my dual and multi boot machines and giving each one it's own machine. Dual and multi was ok when I only had a few machines, but no use now when I have twelve of them.Joy

[quote name='twistedcranium' date='May 16 2003, 07:18 PM']CTRL-N opens a new Mozilla (and likely Netscape too) browser window![/quote]Also Opera And Firebird. Alt+Tab opens the Firebird titlebar in a larger view; and if you continue holding Tab, and release Alt, it wil very quickly go through everything clickable on the page. B) But I have no idea what that would be useful for, unless you're a speed-reader.

:D Here's another one of my favourites: [url="http://www.computerhope.com/ushort.htm"]http://www.computerhope.com/ushort.htm[/url]I'll look for more tomorrow if I don't have a hangover. I've never done something so stupid before, like forgetting to backup before formatting, I think I have too many computers.Joy

CTRL+SHIFT+N - New Tab in konqueror (KDE Web Browser/ File Manager)CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE - Restart "X" (GUI)Windows Key - Opens KDE Menu (on my system anyway - Mandrake 9.1)ALT+TAB - Switch between open applications (yes, it works in Linux too!)Can't really think of any more Linux-specific ones being a newbie and all :D

:o Only the left Window's key opens the KDE menu on Mandrake 9.0, it's only been installed for a day so I'm still finding my way around. It's a big improvement over Mandrake 8.0.Joy
