    Keyboard shortcuts

    Hello Ladies & Gentlemen,

    I've been reading tutorials on keyboard navigation, as I'd like to learn to navigate Windows 10 without a mouse, and while I've mastered a few commands I'd like to know how to de-select highlighted text after CTRL-A has been pressed. I've pressed ESC and also tried the CTRL-Z undo command but it doesn't work. I know I can simply click on my mouse and all highlighted text will be un-highlighted, but I want to learn how to operate without a mouse.

    Any ideas?

App-specific keyboard shortcuts
I just recently got a Windows 10 PC, and I am having a problem. While general keyboard shortcuts (like Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V) work in all applications, shortcuts specific to an application don't work. Is there a fix for this problem?
