All keyboard shortcuts in Calculator – Windows 10


Windows 10 has the Calculator application installed by default, but few people know how modern and useful this application has become. The program that accompanied Windows 7 had only 2 modes of operation (normal and engineering), so users did not pay much attention to it and used it quite rarely.

Thanks to the Calculator used in the current version of the system, you can plot graphs, calculate areas, or even convert currency. If you didn’t know about these features and want to learn more about others, read our article “How to use the Calculator app in Windows 10”.

In this article, however, we will introduce you to the hotkeys that you can use in this application.

Hotkeys or hotkeys are special keyboard shortcuts (most often two) that, when pressed, quickly provide access to the desired function. You don’t need to click the mouse and go to various menus and submenus, just press two (or in some cases one or three) keys and the desired action will be performed.

You can open Calculator not only through StartPrograms, but also through Run command (Win + R and type “calc.exe“).
