Open Live Writer - Keyboard shortcutsWindows Live Writer is dead now for Blogger users and replaced with its Open Source alternative "Open Live Writer (OLW)" which is the perfect blogging toolkit for publishers using Wordpress, Blogger, TypePad and all other popular blogging CMS platforms. As an addicted user of this new blog editor I just figured out some useful keyboard shortcuts that you can use to save time updating your blog using Open Live Writer. I have compiled below the complete list of keyboard shortcuts supported by OLW. Indeed most of these shortcuts are inherited from OLW's parent - Microsoft's Windows Live Writer.
