Our computer keyboards can appear as mystifying as a duck-billed platypus. If you have a standard Windows keyboard, look down and you’ll see 104 keys winking back at you, not to mention that over 30 of them represent more than two elements. If it’s a sleek Mac at your fingertips, you’ll have 109 staring back at you.
They’re pretty impressive figures if we’re talking about the run returns from your first two Test innings in the Baggy Green but they’re pretty bewildering when it comes to typing an email, formatting a Word document or searching the web.
And when you think that Mozart composed some of the greatest music known to ears on a piano with just 61 keys, you can’t help but feel we’ve over-egged the pudding (with platypus eggs).
Well, we’re here to make the keyboard work for you, whether that’s sending emails to loved ones far away, preparing pitches for professional purposes or just making the Internet work better for you. If we’re teaching granny to suck eggs then we’ll just add them to the pudding, but we’re sure you’ll find a few gems from our two lists below, known or unknown.
