I have already posted about Yahoo Messengers shortcut keys. Shortcut keys are keystrokes that provide a quick way to perform an action. Using shortcut keys you can access the functions of an application quite easily and quickly. In Windows Media Player too, you can use the combination of different keyboard keys to accomplish routine task. The use of these keys increases your working speed and even saves time as you don’t need your mouse to select menus and button options.
