It’s nice to learn a lot of different and varying hot-key combinations to minimize the amount of hand movement from the keyboard to the mouse.  One of my favorite hot-keys to use as a short-cut is:

·         “CTRL + SHIFT + L” – Start a Bulleted List. 
 
Other common and well used hot-key combos are:
 
·         “CTRL + B” – Bold Text
·         “CTRL + I” – Italics Text
·         “CTRL + U” – Underline Text
·         “CTRL + C” – Copy Selected Text
·         “CTRL + V” – Paste Copied Text
·         “CTRL + X” – Cut Selected Text
·         “CTRL + Z” – Undo
·         “CTRL + Y” – Redo
·         “CTRL + L” – Left-Align Text
·         “CTRL + R” – Right-Align Text
·         “CTRL + E” – Center-Align Text
