KeyXL: Keyboard Shortcuts for any App

If you are a heavy computer user or a heavy user of some particular program than most likely you are using keyboard shortcuts to perform some of the program’s repetitive functions. A keyboard short cut is a key (or combination of keys) that performs a function within a software program. Usually this same function can be performed using the mouse but the advantage of keyboard shortcuts is that the hand does not need to leave the keyboard. The common example is when you use Ctrl+C to copy and Ctrl+V to paste content, which are used by most computer users out there.
