To illustrate, to highlight and select the whole page hold down the Ctrl key and the A at the same time. Lastly, the + between the keys is to separate the steps. Only if the short cut says ++ will you use the + key. On the condition that there are 3 keys in a short cut remember the Ctrl key is by a Shift and Alt keys. which are often one of the 3 keys.
