Did you know there are alternate shortcuts to the commonly used cut (ctrl+x), copy (ctrl+c) and paste (ctrl+v) shortcuts?

Action Shortcut Alternate Shortcut
Cut Ctrl+X Del+Shift
Copy Ctrl+C Insert+Ctrl
Paste Ctrl+V Insert+Shift

These are kind of confusing so I’m sticking to the Ctrl+ shortcuts. For those who use different keyboard layouts like Dvorák the X, C and V keys are placed far apart and awkward to use. In such cases the alternate shortcuts maybe easier to use.

  1. I’ve actually heard that the C, V, and X in QWERTY are the awkwardly placed ones since you should technically hold the accelerator key with a different hand than you hit the shortcut (like a capital A should be right SHIFT + A). I have a bad habit of always using the same SHIFT key though, so i think this is something u have to train yourself to do.
