Albeit lifting the hand from keyboard to mouse is just a small movement of action, but it’s just not in my favor especially when I’m watching Youtube video with the back leaning comfortably in the chair. Scrolling up and down, and moving the cursor with the mouse is tiresome and slow. Hence, in order to keep the thrill surrounding us, we need shortcuts and we got the list for you.
