Desktop Keyboard Shortcuts Work on the Pocket PC

Advertisement

The most recent edition of Smartphone and Pocket PC magazine (print version) has a tip about Pocket PC (or WM6 Professional/Classic) devices that most of us probably never thought of: you can use standard desktop keyboard commands (for copy, cut, paste, new, undo, italics, bold, etc) right on your Pocket PC! So, for example, to copy, press Ctrl+C after highlighting text. This could be a bit faster than using tap and hold or going through the context menu.
