One of the two most popular and easy to remember shortcuts are used with the "control key" or the "CTRL" found on the bottom row of your keyboard. By pushing those at the same time as the letter "C" you have the shortcut for copy. This makes it easier when you have a large amount of text to transfer to somewhere else. You can then use the control key and the letter "V" and paste that data to whatever page you want it on.
Using keyboard shortcuts can also help out a book writer in a great way. Every page needs to be formatted with a header and a copyright symbol on the bottom. Being able to quickly implement your shortcuts allows you to concentrate on the writing and not worry so much about the formatting.
