About Me

bernd-photo

I am administrator, owner and manager of the ShortcutWorld.com project. The site is maintained as a hobby apart from my day-time job and I work on it mostly in evenings or on weekends.

The original website launched in 2006 to categorize a couple of Firefox Keyboard Shortcuts. After launching, I pretty much forgot about it until I checked the visitor stats a few years later. I figured that some of the pages got hundreds of new and repeat visitors and that the site is being used as a Shortcut Reference by many. I decided in 2009 to make something more meaningful out of it and rebuilt it conceptually from scratch. It took me until late 2010 to rework the concept, data model, and backend processing to put it on track for the right direction.

The simple goal is to have a wiki-style reference of Keyboard Shortcuts which is available for all applications on all platforms in different languages. The extend of the project and quality of the content only depends on how many people are willing to contribute by editing and adding content to the database.

Thanks for visiting!

This site is wonderful. You can access quickly the reference you are seeking. It allows you to one click to convert to pdf, or print. You don't need to create an account to look up shortcuts, and no hoops to jump through messing with advertising. I highly recommend this site for anyone who is seeking shortcuts to any OS or application/software. [Reply]

I'm gonna blow you up buddy boy ;)

On Quora that is! Great work. Super simple and to the point!

One problem though: You didn't put the Firefox shortcuts in the web apps platform page. Whoops ;) Kinda a big oversight.

If you have any possible tutorial that you are aware of on how to create your own specialty shortcuts, please let me know :D

Have fun! [Reply]

Thanks for taking time giving feedback and thanks for the flowers :-) Comments like yours keep me motivated. [Reply]

Comment #9: by Lizzybluts on 5/16/2013:

I have downloaded tons of shortcuts from the internet. Yours is by far, the most efficient, easy to read shortcut lists of all time. I'm putting all other shortcuts in the trash and relying totally on your information. Thanks for taking the time to create. I'm sure it is a major undertaking. Much appreciated! [Reply]

Reply by r1ckr011 on 9/4/2013:

Don't throw them away! Make a master list, full of every possible shortcut--he may yet not have all of them!

Oh, and as mobile platforms develop and newer projects like Raspberry Pi, custom ARM Architectures, custom ROMs, hell... even Video Game Console shortcuts :P --all these things will need to be included eventually :)

That's not even talking about possible custom shortcuts development for individual people on their boxes. Which may or may not someday be packaged as something you might download, say on CNET!

Excellent potential. I hope to all that is holy that you will get the resources you need to finish this project :D

Comment #6: by max on 1/2/2013:

is there any way I can use shortcuts from the startup bios menu without my enter key. I am stuck on a resume window and cant get out of it. [Reply]

Reply by bernd on 1/2/2013:

Not sure what problem is, but if that is the Windows Resume you are stuck, it probably is an issue with the Windows Keyboard / Mouse Driver which can't be loaded and keyboard does not work at all. If that is an older PC, try a PS/2 keyboard. Or I think you can press F8 upon loading and try to get to windows restore.

Comment #4: by catmat on 8/8/2012:

I am going to tell everyone I know about this website!
What a great concept AND design!
Any windows user that doesn't know win + d (and thats a lot of them) are truly missing out!!
Now that I know this excellent web site is available, I'm going to become a "shortcutworld.com ambassador".
Who knows, I might even contribute!! [Reply]

Comment #3: by LoriM on 10/13/2011:

What a great idea. I HATE THE MOUSE. Love shortcuts. Will you be posting tips for creating our own shortcuts? E.g. I came here to see if there was a way to zoom in and out in Word 2010, using keyboard shortucts (apparently not). I bet I can figure out a way but it would be great to be able to just cut and paste some macro code.... [Reply]

Comment #2: by vikalp_abrol on 3/29/2011:

Great Site, Wish you good luck for your future... I love these shortcuts.... Everybody should try to work smartly , instead of working hard on same task [Reply]
