You might have a point...but I will note that those functions have had those key combination for a LONG, LONG time. I routinely with use Ctrl-Z for undo as I learned that one a LONG time ago on my Macs (which is actually Cmd-Z on a Mac). Same with Ctrl-C for copy, Ctrl-V for paste, and Ctrl-X for cut. It is much easier for me to use the key combination than either menus or on-screen buttons.
But, then I had such stuff "burned" into me by longtime use, so it is second nature to me by now...and that certainly will not be the case for everyone.

Madness?? No. Just ignorance. That's why I read PC World. I trust you people to keep me clued in; or at least to remind me of all the tricks I've forgotten. Unless you use a particular app all the time, who can remember all this stuff?
That's why even PC World has multiple writers.

I like your common-sense suggestion about Ctl-z, etc. but I've found one app that I used almost daily that you don't want to use Ctl-V on, and that's Quicken! Ctl-V on that, at least when you're in the transaction area voids the transaction you're working on. Haven't tried the Ctl-z back-out method of correction yet, but will if I ever do that again! Just wish I could find a way to implement a past function in Quicken. There's probably an easy work around I just haven't gotten around to looking it up yet.
Thanks again for all the tips.
