New to using WordPress? These are important shortcuts you need

I know from experience the first time you open up WordPress it can be a confusing interface to use eventually it becomes second nature to you. Next time you go to post a blog, try using these shortcodes to make your life easier. I should say I’m using a Mac so when I use “⌘” if you are on a Windows device just use “ctrl”.

Basic Shortcodes

⌘ + c = Copy

⌘ + v = Paste

⌘ + x = Cut

⌘ + a = Select all

⌘ + z = Undo

⌘ + y = Redo

⌘ + b = Bold

⌘ + i = Italic

⌘ + u = Underline

⌘ + k = Insert/edit link

Advanced Shortcodes

These a little different depending what device you use so when i use “Ctrl + Option (alt ⌥)” on a Mac, use “Alt + Shift (⇧)” on a Windows device.
