How to add an edge between two points?

Ok, I am a blender newbie, but I am not a newb to 3D, in trying to get to know blender I am doing this face tutorial, and I have gotten this far. My question is, how do I add edges between each of the points? The only way I can think of is by selecting each point, making a new edge/point and merging with the point needed, but that seems a bit of a long winded way of doing thigs.

Select the two points and hit the FKEY. Or better yet, because you’ll need to do this eventually for this tut, select four verts and hit the FKEY to build a face.


You can select two verticies, and if you press F it will make an edge. Select three or four verticies and press F and it will make a face.

Thanks for the good replies guys.
