Some standard Windows keyboard shortcuts

These have been around for a long time, but in case they have been forgotten, here are some standard keyboard shortcuts that work in Windows and many Windows applications. You will also find that some of these can be found on your keyboard, on the front of the keys.

[Ctrl+B] Make selected text bold or start typing in bold

[Ctrl+I]  Make selected text italicized or start typing in italics
