Ctrl Shortcuts

We often use the Ctrl key on the keyboard, so it is important to know all the Ctrl shortcuts used.

First, you have to know what is the Ctrl key.


What is the Ctrl key?


In computing, a Control key (Ctrl) is a modifier key found on IBM-compatible computer keyboards in the bottom left and right portion of the main keyboard which, when pressed in conjunction with another key, performs a special operation.

Similar to the Shift key, the Control key rarely performs any function when pressed by itself.
