I'm trying to figure out how Ctrl q is easier than Ctrl c.
You use your left pinky for Ctrl? Which finger for q?

I practically use win + v more than ctr + v these days


Your Phone app is a game changer as well.

I'm guessing left thumb for ctrl and index finger for q/w. Not using "home keys".

On my keyboard left Ctrl is all the way in the corner. I'd have to twist my hand to get my thumb on ctrl

Just saw this thread so prob been mentioned before but Iíll share anyways:
Power toys by Microsoft is an excellent toolbox of goodies for pc

I had a problem- I do a lot of copy paste at work and the stretch for ctrl c and ctrl v for my fingers was hurting (surface pro). (Yes I utilize windows + paste as well but when I donít itís a stretch)
Enter power toys
One of the features is to replace certain keys or shortcuts with another key or shortcut you decide.
So I now use ctrl q for copy and ctrl w for paste. Try it on a keyboard itís a whole lot easier and quicker than the regular way ;D

Eta: my bad it was literally just mentioned a few posts back. Sorry!

Amongst the very useful Power toys tools (in no particular order)

- Always on top
- Text extractor
- Mouse without borders
- Run
- Power Rename
- Power Resize

you cannot tell me its easier to reach for the c than to reach to the q. and using the pinky for the ctrl is for those who dont use copy paste alot, you have to move ur whole hand down. my hands are over the keyboard all the time and my thumb is closer to the ctrl




nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

Different (key)strokes for different folks.
I use my pinky for control a lot. Mostly for moving the cursor one word at a time and for cut/copy/paste

If you're using your thumb for control then yes I guess q is easier.

So good! (And all the other tools and benefits...)

You just need to make sure I'm advance to go to the settings and install the sound recorder and make sure it's set to record the computer audio.

It's not windows specific.
There are a lot of such services. Was there something about this that you specifically liked?

I like using task scheduler to shut off the computer at a certain time each night.
