Keystroke

Keystroke means the pressing of a key. The efficiency of software programs is sometimes measured by the number of keystrokes it requires to perform a specific function. The fewer the keystrokes, claim some software producers, the faster and more efficient the program. The number of keystrokes, however, is generally less important than other characteristics of the software.
