Windows: Efficiency is a free program that trains you to use keyboard shortcuts in Windows and Microsoft Office (2010 and 2007) Word and Excel. The app shows you the keyboard shortcuts associated with your mouse movements to help you learn them.
Clicking on the bold button in the ribbon in Excel, for example, will bring up a little notification that you could use Ctrl+2 next time. When you use Ctrl+2 the next time, Efficiency will offer you some positive reinforcement (“good job!”). The program also keep track of your progress in learning the many keyboard shortcuts available (there are over 150 in Excel), and you can turn some shortcut notifications off if you like — e.g. the Delete button.
Although a printable Word cheatsheet and Excel keyboard shortcut reference sheets can be useful on hand, Efficiency can train you to work faster naturally. You can see how it works in the video below or just get started learning more time-saving shortcuts now with the download link below.
