    You can find app specific shortcuts right besides the option listed in the menues. Within the Hub for example hit the three dots and you'll see besides Compose there is a little "c" and besides Search you'll see an "s". These are some shortcuts. In the CB10 app for CrackBerry for example you can hit Alt+P on the forums mainpage to check participated topics or Alt+M on the frontpage to mark everything read.

    It takes some time getting used to such a new OS, feel free asking for help around here.

    Also the battery usually needs some settling in, keep an eye on it for the next few days. If it doesn't get better provide us with screenshots from your device manager.

    Updating to the latest software OS is easy to do, but may take some time, so it's best not to be in a hurry. First, go to your device's Settings menu. You can get there by going to the first page of app icons, swiping down from the top edge of the screen to get to the quick settings menu, and then tapping the "settings" button to get to the system settings menu.

    After you tap the settings button to get to the System Settings menu, scroll down to the "Software Update" button and press it. Follow directions there to update to the latest version of the OS!

    Sure. You can download and use an autoloader of the OS version that you want to put on your Q10. If you search this forum, you'll find links to autoloaders for the latest OS versions and you'll find tutorials on how to use autoloaders to update your Q10's OS.
