Save time learning Windows and Apple Keyboard shortcuts

Most of the time the operating systems we use have shortcut keys to complete different tasks. There is no good place to look them up all at once. I found a resource on social media that let me collect and combine all that information into one post. So I hope someone will have some benefit from that.
