I love Sudoku. Do you love Sudoku? Approaching a Sudoku puzzle has one similarity to how I approach repairing a computer. What may seem like the obvious solution often requires more time and thought than the initial analysis. This is what I love about computer repair. I’m able to help you get back to your life and – in a way – solve a puzzle to get you there! One thing you might find puzzling is how to move things around on your computer. I don’t mean icons; no, today we are going to learn how to use hotkeys to Cut and Paste.

Ever want to move things on your computer with just a few clicks? Here’s how! (This is for right-handed setup. Sorry lefties, word count limitations!)

    even a shortcut on your desktop.
    a. Selection Methods:
    i. Left-click once on what you want to copy.
    ii. Left-click and keep your finger down to select multiple items.
    iii. Double left-click or triple left-click to select a line or paragraph.

    same time. [Ctrl] + [C]
  2. Open a new folder, document, or go to your desktop and press the Control button and the V button at the same time [Ctrl] + [V]
