If We talk about Hotkeys or Shortcut keys than the answer is Yes, as Microsoft taken care of this things too by Integrating Calculator and Zoom Buttons for quickly accessing to them. Shortcut Keys like Volume increase or Decrease are also a part of this Wireless Keyboard.
As The Keyboard and Mouse are Wireless requiring Batteries to work, For keyboard you will be needing 2 AAA Alkaline Batteries where as 2 AA batteries for Working of Mouse.
There is Battery Life Indicator on Keyboard to Avoid getting caught with a dead battery. The battery status indicator glows red when the battery is running low and that simply means you must Replace them with Fresh or Newer ones and to extend the Life of AA Batteries of Mouse you may Turn off it via Power Button. It is expected that battery life is about 15 Months for Keyboard and 8 months for Mouse.
As a Part of Service, Microsoft gives 2 Year Limited Warranty on this but We don’t have to worry much as the Product is Tested By Microsft as well.
1)The Function Keys are too small as Seen on Other Keyboards.
2)There is no indicator for Num Lock | Scroll Lock | Caps Lock.
After Overall Studying the Positives and Negatives we will say that this is Decent Product with Attractive look and Ergonomic in Style. This will be better option to those who works in Office or at work but not much good option to Gamers and Multimedia Shortcut Key Lovers.
