Nano Shortcuts

After recently transitioning from Windows to Linux (Debian specifically), I find myself having to relearn everything that has been second nature for way too many years. Simple tasks have become complex but I’m gradually figuring things out.

Today’s exercise in frustration was when I needed to paste text copied from a webpage into a document opened in Nano. Ctrl-V or ^V takes you to the next page…clearly not what I wanted.

After a little Googling, I discovered, Shift-Ins does the trick for pasting into Nano.
