What are you waiting for?

Mastering keyboard shortcuts saves you massive amounts of time!

When I first started working with Excel, I'd become frustrated with how much time I spent doing tedious work. I'd slowly move the mouse across the screen, click one button, then move the mouse back to click a cell and so on. I was wasting hours of my life each week.

I knew I needed to learn more shortcuts, but in the moment it was so much easier to use the mouse than to look up the shortcut online or look at the cheatsheet next to my desk. Shortcut Coach is the perfect solution to this problem!

Simply work as you usually would and you'll learn shortcuts effortlessly as you work.
