Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you, it's the simple things in life that make our lives happy and this is one of them. A simple extension for us keyboard shortcut users. I was forever hitting CNTR S and having to close a windows window that opened because this keyboard shortcut didn't work in my joomla admin. I'm a newbe so when i first installed the extension I thought it wasn't working. I thought it might be because I was using K2 however I remembered to check to see if I had to "turn it on"or activate it and that's what I had to do so once I did that in the plugins it worked great.'

Thanks again, hope there are more shortcuts coming.

A great idea and a simply well-working realization! Install, enable plugin, done!

Never again I'll have to use the mouse just to do a fast save. It annoyed me so much that Joomla doesn't have such shortcuts built in.
Today I finally had the idea to find out if someone built such an extension.

And here it is. Great work. Thank you!
