Keyboard shortcuts, better known as “shortcuts” are key combinations that make it easier for users to work on a PC or laptop. The most common shortcuts are Ctrl + c and Ctrl + v for copying and pasting content. Shortcuts make it easy to work with graphics and elements, and I can work much faster in my desktop applications like Photoshop.
Less common are shortcuts for web applications. For SharePoint Online, there are a few useful shortcuts that make the use of the mouse unnecessary and make regular tasks much easier.

Why Should I use SharePoint in My Organization?
First of all, over three-quarters of Fortune 500 companies use Microsoft SharePoint. Though they do not use it for closely the same reason, it also proves the fact that the use of SharePoint is flexible. The trickiest part to understand in SharePoint is that it is not any one software product by the Microsoft. Rather, it is a platform which in-houses a collection of software programs that are used differently by different organizations. SharePoint is not something that you buy and install on your system but rather it is a backend control system that binds different computers of your employees and also their mobile devices together. It binds the individual efforts into one collection and allows synchronization between all the individual efforts to be seen as one.
The reason behind the SharePoint development is to systematize an enterprise or company with thousands of employees in a number of locations in such a way that irrespective of their location, they are all connected to each other like they are working under the same office. It consists of a collection of several Web-Parts and applications from the SharePoint development services that are used to systematize the work around any business. Here are some ways organizations use SharePoint to organize their working:
- SharePoint as an intranet application
- Document sharing and access
- Collaboration is easy with SharePoint
- Use SharePoint to connect and share with outside businesses
- Not only the private intranets/extranets, you can build the public sites too
