Well, I'm here with a few tricks that can help you accomplish more in less time! Sometimes we find ourselves in front of a PC for long periods of time for whatever reason -- work or leisure -- and, during those times, most of us would like to get things done much faster is a less hectic way!
CTRL-ANY NUMBER FROM 1 TO 9
-- (holding down the "CTRL" key and then pressing "1" thru "9"). This will allow you to toggle through the different tabs you have open in your internet browser!
For instance, if you have five different websites open in your browser (a different website on each tab) when you hold down the CTRL key and press the "1" key your first tab will be selected showing you the website in your first tab. If you hold down the CTRL key and press the "5" key, the website in your 5th tab will be shown! If you have more than 10 tabs open at the same time (as I unfortunately do sometimes) then you're doing too much, lol!
-- Holding down these keys at the same time will allow you to toggle through all the different files you have open on your PC!
Having to stop each time to grab the mouse and start clicking seriously slows down your flow. Instead, by holding down the CTRL-ALT-TAB keys at the same time a small window will appear in the center of your screen allowing you to jump to a specific program you already have open without having to grab your mouse to search for it in your Taskbar! This saves you SO much time!
-- Furthermore, if you only hold down your CTRL-TAB keys (and tap on the tab key) you can consecutively step through each website you have open in your browser one tab after the next! Huge time saver!
-- (holding down the "CTRL" key and then pressing C) . This is a halt/stop command on some systems, and on others is is COPY or "copy into clipboard". Easier than moving a mouse around to do this.
-- where CTRL-C is copy, CTRL-V is PASTE.
-- CUT, the equivalent of copy and delete. Notice the X, C, V keys are adjacent on the keyboard.
-- On some machines in some circumstances this is SELECT-ALL.
-- Save As
-- Bookmark a website to your Favorites
-- Opens your browser History
-- UNDO what you did last
-- Find a particular word or phase on the screen. This allows you to search through documents or webpages for different words or phrases you're looking for!
Once you get use to using these keyboard shortcuts, you will find yourself breezing through your workflow even faster than you are now!
I welcome any comments below from you describing how you like using these shortcuts and/or if you've already been familiar with some of them. Let me know how they've affected your time using your PC. Thanks!
