    Title. Basically stuff like Ctrl+Shift+Arrow Key for quick highlight, Ctrl+Backspace for quick delete, Home to return to the beginning of the body of text, etc.

    I don't use word processing applications often but I do use copy, paste and select all shortcuts.

    As others have asked, what do you mean by "still"?
    Why would you refrain from using short cuts?

    What I was getting at was the fact that these short cuts have been around for a pretty long while, so they could be easily forgotten, and or jut not known.

    You don't tend to forget things that have become habitual.
    And if you didn't even know about them then it doesn't really count as "not still using" them

    Well, unless it's faster to do with the mouse, I mash shortcuts like crazy :P I broke ALT and DEL on my previous keyboard this way, rendering it useless :P

    Yup, i use them all. Especially when i am using a mechanical keyboard, that sound and button-pressing satisfaction, it doesn't get much better than that, lads!
