Series of one or several keys that invoke some software/os action when triggered by the user

A Shortcut is a series of one or several keys that invoke some software/os action when triggered by the user.

Common known keyboard shortcuts in Mac OS X are for example:

  • Command+Q for quitting an application
  • Command+W for closing a window
  • Command+C for copying some data
  • Command+V for pasting the copied data

For the iOS application shortcuts, use the tag instead.
