Post Article Faster By Using These “Windows Live Writer” Shortcuts

Windows Live Writer is one of the most used desktop client for posting articles on the blogs used by bloggers all around the globe.

WLW is a part of Windows Live Essential,Writing blogs from WLW is very time saving, like for me if I had to write a post then first I will open my WordPress  login page and login and then move to New Post page and then write there, but in WLW I just need to open it and start writing and when I am done just hit Publish buttons, not only this insertion of Pictures, Videos fro YouTube or computer is very easy which is not there in WordPress Web Publication.
