For those staff members who use keyboard shortcuts frequently, the move from Mac OS X to Windows 8.1 may present the simple challenge of changing muscle memory. Rest assured that beyond that, your most frequently used keyboard shortcuts will easily transfer from one staff laptop to the next.
On the Mac, the “Command” key was the basis of most keyboard shortcuts, such Command-C to copy or Command-V to paste.
On Windows, it is a simple shift to the left a couple of keys to the “Control” key. For example, to copy an image or text, the keyboard shortcut in Windows 8.1 is Control-C. To paste, it is Control-V.
These nearly identical keyboard shortcuts will make for a smooth transition, even as one’s fingers take some time to catch-up.
