Quick Typing Tip - Jump over Words in Windows

This is a very common tip among computer typists who work in Windows - Jumping over words! What some people do to move the cursor to the first or last character of a word is to hit and hold the left or right arrow keys.

A smarter approach is to jump over whole words. To do it, just press and hold Ctrl and use the left or right arrows keys. The cursor will move to the beginning or end of a word depending on the arrow key you pressed, saving you some time.

Was kinda surprised to know that a few of my colleagues didn't knew this. If you know about any similar tip, let us know with your comments. Enjoy!
