Copy and Paste

I don't use ctrl-c and ctrl-v for copy/paste. I prefer the seemly ancient way of Ctrl-Insert and Shift-Insert.
It allows for one handed quick navigation, selection, deletion and copy/pasting.
It also needs a real keyboard not one of those arty useless ones with half the keys missing :)

Its a standard and has existed for as long as I remember in Unix and Windows. Still in windows 10 as I have checked.

I forget what I press and can't explain it when asked so I went and wrote down the common if not all the ones I use....

copy and paste

Ctrl-InsertCopy
Shift-InsertPaste

Navigation

Ctrl-Rightmove cursor to next word
Ctrl-Leftmove cursor to start of current word
Ctrl-Upmove cursor to start of paragraph
Ctrl-Downmove cursor to end of paragraph
Ctrl-HomeMove cursor to top of document
Ctrl-EndMove cursor to bottom of document
Ctrl-PageUpMove cursor to top of page
Ctrl-PageDownMove cursor to bottom of page
HomeMove cursor to start of line
EndMove cursor to end of line

and the important selections
Just the navigations with shift really.

Shift-Ctrl-RightMove cursor to next word and select all between
Shift-Ctrl-LeftMove cursor to start of word and select all between
Shift-Ctrl-Upmove cursor to start of paragraph and select all between
Shift-Ctrl-Downmove cursor to end of paragraph and select all between
Shift-HomeMove cursor to start of line and select all between
Shift-EndMove cursor to end of line and select all between
Shift-Ctrl-HomeMove cursor to top of document and select all between
Shift-Ctrl-EndMove cursor to bottom of document and select all between (in Excel it does to the end of valid data. very handy)
Shift-Ctrl-PageUpMove cursor to top of page and select all between
Shift-Ctrl-PageDownMove cursor to bottom of page and select all between

finally the deletes

Shift-DeleteDeletes whole line
Ctrl-DeleteDeletes to end of word
Ctrl-BackspaceDeletes to start of word

Don't have a ctrl-x cut equivalent but since the finger is there, a tap on delete key does the job.

The Up/Down ones tend to vary between programs so don't always work as explained above.
