keyboard shortcut is a finite set of one or more keys that interacts with a software or operating system operation when triggered by the user.The simplest keyboard shortcuts consist of only one key. For these, one generally just writes out the name of the key, as in the message “Press F1 for Help”. The name of the key is sometimes surrounded in brackets or similar characters. For example: [F1] or <F1>. The key name may also be set off using special formatting (bold, italic, all caps, etc.) Most of the shortcuts require two or more keys to be pressed together.
