Move between open programmes on your computer using the keyboard

If you have more than one programme running on the computer, e.g. the wordprocessor and the internet browser, you can switch between them using a “keyboard shortcut” (-combination of key presses). Press and hold the key labelled alt then press the tab key (-or cmd and tab on a mac). Small icons of the running programmes will appear and with each press of the tab key (whilst alt key is held down), a different programme icon will be selected. Release the keys once the programme you want is selected.
