Use Keyboard Shortcuts

Most keyboards have at least a few shortcuts that can help you quickly navigate the computer and save you some time. If you’re not sure which shortcuts are best for you, try going to your computer’s help center. You’ll usually be able to find a list of all the shortcuts and how to use them. Keyboard shortcuts can not only help you save time when typing, but they can also help you avoid getting carpal tunnel syndrome.

If you’re constantly moving your hands from the keyboard to the mouse and back again, you’re more likely to injure your wrists.
