5 shortcut keys that help you code faster🏃‍♀️💨

What I think I look like when I am using them:

Please note that I am using a Windows keyboard. Other than that, the following shortcuts are not specific to any IDE or editor.

🏃‍♀️💨 Move the cursor one word at a time

skip between words

Useful for:

🏃‍♀️💨 The whole line at a time

skip between lines

Similar to the first shortcut, you can use this for deleting/cutting the whole line, or fix the first/last character of the line.

🏃‍♀️💨 Switching between tabs

🏃‍♀️💨 Switching between windows

If you prefer to open all the pages on different browsers, use Alt + Tab to switch between windows.

It doesn’t come with the + number feature like Ctrl + Tab but you can Windows + Tab to display all the windows at once.

🏃‍♀️💨 Oops I close my windows/tabs

Ctrl + Shift + T to the rescue! It allows you to re-open the last tab you close in Chrome.
