The question is, should I include BOTH keyboard AND mouse instructions
my documentation? It seems to me that anyone turning on a pc these days
usually (at least the majority) using a mouse for everything


There are still a lot of keyboard users out there. I've been working on
a manual with both mouse and keyboard instructions, and it had them in
complete repetitive detail for each step. I opted to go for "using the
mouse" and "using the keyboard" sections, and then just referenced (i.e.
- "using the mouse or the keyboard") in each step. I just put in tables
of all the keyboard shortcuts in the "using the keyboard" section, and
simple double-click/right-click instructions in the "using the mouse"
