Is there a better idea than my observation below?



Which key is more frequently used with Microsoft Office during School days and in Work?


For me, the “Ctrl” key e.g. for “bold” or “undo” commands in Office software is frequent used.

Instead of moving you entire hand with more effort into a awkward position to execute the keyboard shortcuts, would reversing the position of “Ctrl” and “Alt” keys provide a least effort and more ergonomic way of executing Computer commands?
