Use shortcut keys as alternative to point and click

It's often faster and easier to use shortcut keys than your mouse. Most items on your toolbar have an underlined letter -- for example, File. Pressing Alt+F opens the File menu. The options you see there can be activated by simply pressing an underlined letter, for example, Open. With a little practice you can save even more steps. For example, in many applications you can open a file by pressing Ctrl+O. The shortcut keys are easily located on the pull-down menus.
