About This Course

Published 2/2015 English

Course Description

  • Have you used your computer for years but barely know how to use it?
  • Do you sit behind co-workers and say "how did they do that?"
  • When given a task do you spend your time right arrowing through documents?
  • Have you ever thought about being a pro-level user of the tool you use every day?

I hire new people every day. I want my employees to get the most of their day, and I want to get the most of out my money. With the skills I show you in this course you will save yourself hours every week, and people will look at you like a Pro level user.

Every day we spend so much time trying so hard to get a lot done. yet we find at the end of the day we have done nothing. I can show you how to master your computer and make yourself way more productive.

We spend hours on the computer but I find that no one ever knows how to use their computer properly. It is the tool of your trade isn't it? When you sit down at it though you use it almost the same way you used it the first time you sat down at it. Every day people do the same thing repeatedly but what if there was an easy way to learn how to do your daily tasks only faster. What would you do with that time? Take a longer lunch? Or even maybe you could make more money?

I'm here to show you how to become a master of things you do every day. In this course I will show you how to maneuver your computer faster. Write emails like a speed daemon. Skate through word and excel like your on a speed train, and even show you how to do massive tasks in seconds. You don't have to be a computer hacker to understand what I'm talking about either.

By the end of my course you will know some of the key secrets to speed through large tasks like a pro. How to use a macro tool that can make minced meat out of any repetitive task. Text manipulation that will make you the king of your cubicle. Use Microsoft office short-cuts that will make you skip through Word and Excel projects faster than you could have ever thought.

If for any reason you don't like my course I'll give you a full refund.

What am I going to get from this course?

Section 3: Word Shortcuts

In this section, the students will learn some of the most used functions. This section will cover the Copy and Paste functions,Character Formatting, Text Alignment, the Undo and Redo functions, how to change a text's font size, quickly navigating through a text and how to select text to highlight in an efficient manner.


Character formatting is probably the most used feature in Microsoft Word. In this course I show you how to do this without ever touching your mouse.

Press Ctrl + B to set text to bold.

Press Ctrl + I to set text to Italic.

Press Ctrl + U to underline text.


A lot of time is wasted undoing manually a mistake you made. Not everyone knows about the Undo and Redo commands but these commands have definately helped speed up things for my employees. Some people use the mouse and do this the long way, but why not just use shortcuts to speed up your day.

Press Ctrl + Z to undo an action.

Press Ctrl + Y to redo an action that was undone.


The mouse is a slow tool. A lot of time is spent choosing font sizes. So why not use the shortcuts so you can decide which font best suits your document.

Press Ctrl + [ to decrease font size.
Press Ctrl + ] to increase font size.


I see no one that uses these features and I use them every day to zoom through documents and code and get to the formatting I want to do. Anyone of these items will save you time but if you use them all, all the time the time savings are astounding.

This lecture will show what happens when arrows keys are used with the Ctrl key.


Using the same keys that I taught you in the previous class, we take it one step further and do mass selecting of data.

This lecture will show what happens when arrow keys are used with the Shift key.

Press Ctrl + A to select all cells in the worksheet. Utilize the arrow keys with Shift key. The Ctrl key may also be used along with the Shift and arrow keys.


Press Ctrl + G to key in a cell address and jump to that cell. Utilizie the Ctrl key along the PageUp, PageDown, Home and End keys.

Instructor Biography

Rico Rodriguez, Entrepreneur | Python Expert |Word and Windows Trainer



As an entrepreneur I have started numerous businesses and both failed and exceeded. I can show you every tool I have used to make a small fortune in residual income. I outsource almost everything i do in the entreprenerural space from Ebay and Amazon Stores to local referral marketing.



I use Python and Javascript and C# in my daily life to both make a living and to gather data online. These are the tools of my trade and I am amazing at what I do.



On the side I go into small businesses and help them streamline their business to reduce cost and increase productivity. Sometimes training is the key for some companies other times you need to fire people to bring productivity back to where it needs to be. Let me show you the ropes.
