PS I stole borrowed the idea for this from  Sally Ann.She is one of the brilliant organising girls @ A Good sort ...she got the idea from Donna-Marie at Small Business Diva.

I knew a few of these but I always forget the basics.To make a line like this type hr then add these < > remove the spaces  ! 

I also won this set of Drawer Organisers from Sally Ann  & Tricia @A Good sort.
Though my camera refuses to let me download the pictures right now!!!
Now  ... if I just have  a few minutes to reorganise my drawers.

Congratulations … and thanks! I’m aware of MANY of these shortcuts, but a few are new to me … and it never hurts to be reminded of what I know, but don’t always remember to do.

FYI - when you made this change to put comments 'in line' ... the option to check the little box isn't available ... just so you know. It's why I haven't made the change on my blogs because I respond like you do ... in comments.
Hugs and blessings,

@Monday through Sunday - I know - it makes things quicker too.

@Storyteller: Thanks for letting about comments I did not know.

@Alicia : YES *SIGH* a few work in comments - HOME,END & cursor but most will only work in documents - I have tested a few - they are very cool tricks the date field, new document, ALL CAPS,finding the cursor, increasing and decreasing the Font ... haven't tested them in blogger -
PS CONTROL Z works - undo's boo boos
