    Forum BBCode List and Browser Keyboard Shortcuts

    I've only tested these in Firefox, so here's my guide for you for easy to use shortcuts that make using your browser easier, along with the shortcuts I know for the Forum Chat Box.

    BB Code and Forum Text Box Shortcuts

    BB Code list here

    CTRL + X = Cuts The Highlighted Text (Deleted the highlighted section)

    CTRL + C = Copies The Highlighted Text (Keeps the highlighted section)

    CTRL + V = Pastes the Last Cut or Copy in your history

    CTRL + Z = Undoes the last action you took

    CTRL + Y = Redo your last action

    CTRL + A = Selects All text on your current page

    CTRL + B = Wraps the Highlighted text in Bold Tags

    CTRL + I = Wraps the Highlighted text in Italic tags

    CTRL + U = Wraps the Highlighted text in Underline tags

    CTRL + L = Opens the URL Link window

    CTRL + End = Move to the end of your text box

    CTRL + Home = Move to the top of your chat box

    CTRL + F = Opens the "Search and Find" Function in your browser

    CTRL + G = While using the Search function, automatically goes to the next phrase found

    CTRL + Shift + Left Arrow Key = Highlights the next word to the left on the selected line. Repeatedly
    pressing expands your highlight.

    CTRL + Shift + Right Arrow Key = Highlights the next word to the right on the selected line. Repeatedly pressing expands your highlight.

    CTRL + Shift + Up Arrow Key = Highlights all words to the left of your cursor on the selected line.

    CTRL + Shift + Down Arrow Key = Highlights all words to the right of your cursor on the selected line.

    *NOTE* By using CTRL + Shift + Arrow Keys (for example, Left, Up, Left, Up) you can gradually go up several lines.

    Left Click (Hold) and Dragging will do the same thing.

    Just for ease of use, Assume that anything that opens a box can be hit again to shut the box again. So if you open your history, just hit CTRL H to shut the box again.
