2*5d/wk = 10min/wk*50wks = 500min/yr / 60min/hr = 8.34hr/yr
So, 2 min a day doesn't seem like much, but that teeny-tiny amount of time saves you a full work day and some change every year. Since you're effectively saving about 4.16hr every minute you save per day, I'd say it's worth it in the long run from a purely economic point of view since the real number is likely to be 5-10min/day, if not more. (((I work at in an office and I can definitely say that I can get things done faster within word/excel purely due to keyboard shortcuts than other people in the office...I work help desk, so I watch it every day. Nothing wrong with not knowing keyboard shortcuts, but to deny their utility is willful ignorance, not wanting to learn something new, and/or aversion to change)))
Ctrl+c, ctrl+x, ctrl+v !! :D
