Keyboard shortcuts are keys or combinations of keys that provide an alternative way to do something that you’d typically do with a mouse.
Take a snip of what’s on your screen
Press Windows logo key + Shift + S to open the snipping bar, then drag the cursor over the area you want to capture. The area you snipped will be saved to your clipboard.
Add emoji from your keyboard
Express yourself however and wherever you want. Press Windows logo key + period (.) to open an emoji panel. Use kaomojis to create faces with text, and symbols—like punctuation and currency—to make a statement.

Open Settings quickly

Copy files or text
Select what you want to copy, then press Ctrl + C. It’ll be stored on your clipboard, so you can paste it where you want by pressing Ctrl + V.
Cut and paste files or text
Select what you want to cut and press Ctrl + X. Go to the place you want to move it to, then press Ctrl + V to paste it there.
Switch between open windows
Hold down the Alt key, press Tab repeatedly until the window you want is selected, and then release the Alt key.
