Keyboard shortcuts can help you be more efficient (and potentially healthier). They allow you to complete certain tasks faster since you don't have to reach for a mouse to maneuver, scroll, and click all the time. They can also help prevent RSI (Repetitive Syndrome Injury); an injury caused by doing repetitive tasks that many people develop in their mouse hand.

STACK has a number of shortcuts to help you boost your productivity and give your mouse a rest.

TIP: A list of shortcuts is available in the application for reference. Just click the Help ? icon on the top navigation and select Keyboard Shortcuts.
