I’m one of those users who prefers using my keyboard rather than my mouse to launch various programs and perform different actions. Not only do I find it faster, but I also find it easier. Each program you install will have a set of keyboard shortcuts. For example, all of the Microsoft Office application supports numerous keyboard shortcuts that you can use to perform different actions. For example, I prefer for use the CTRL + F keyboard shortcut to open the Find window in Word, instead of using my mouse to click the required menu option.
