Keyboard shortcuts save time. If you are just starting to use Project for the web or are a pretty heavy user you can create and update your projects more efficiently by taking advantage of these Shortcuts. It may just save grabbing the mouse and making a couple of clicks but over added up this can save a heap of time. Let me know if you find any more and I'll add them in. A couple of these work in all views (Grid, Board, Timeline); the majority only work in Grid and Timeline view.
