Tip of the Week: Easy to Remember Tricks for Windows 10

Tip of the Week: Easy to Remember Tricks for Windows 10

Working with your computer for so much of the day means you need to get as much productivity out of it as possible. If you can speed up some of the ways you access specific information, you can get even more done. Shortcuts are very helpful to this end. Here are some of the easiest and best ways you can save time while working with a computer.

Restoring Closed Tabs
Accidentally closing a tab can be annoying--especially if you can’t remember how you got there. Thankfully, there is a shortcut you can use to get back to where you were. This shortcut is Ctrl + Shift + T, which will reopen a recently closed tab.

Close a Window or Tab
If you are ready to close your window or tab, you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + W to close it quickly.

Spacebar Scroll
If you don’t want to use your mouse wheel to scroll down a page, you can instead use the spacebar. If you hold down the Shift key and tap Space, your screen will jump down in full-screen increments rather than the slow crawl from just the arrow key.

Mousewheel Functions
You can use your mouse scroll wheel to perform various tasks. One of them involves quickly opening a link in a new tab. You can do this by clicking on it with the mouse scroll wheel (yes, there is a button under it). This saves you the trouble of going through multiple clicks with your mouse.
