Way, way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and the mouse was just a glimmer in some engineer's eye at PARC, there were keyboard shortcuts. Just like in typing class, where they taught you nave to take your hands off the home row keys, you could be well served by keeping your hands on the keyboard and remembering a few arcane commands. With the advent of and wide adoption of the mouse, we've forgotten a lot of those skills. Now instead of just typing a couple of keystrokes, we gesture wildly with our desktop rodent, hoping it will lead us to electronic bliss. If you've got all the time in the world, that may work for you. For the rest of us, a tool like Fingertips may be more helpful.

To use Fingertips, all you need to do is hit a hotkey and up pops its dialog box. Type a quickie command into it, and you're adding an event to your Outlook calendar, surfing to your favorite website, or opening that important spreadsheet. And you're doing so a whole lot quicker than you're used to. It's even got a built-in calculator, so you don't need to hunt for the trusty old ten-key or try to find your calculator app.

You can download a copy of Fingertips for free and run it on your Windows machine.
