Tip of the Week: Handy Browsing Shortcuts

When so much of the day is spent working on the computer, it can be argued that efficiency is paramount to productivity. The faster you are able to do things, the more you could potentially get done. This is how shortcuts work: while the changes are incremental, they add up. For this week’s tip, we’ll go over a few such shortcuts.

Restoring Closed Tabs
We’ve all been in the position where we’ve closed out of a browser tab to immediately realize that we still needed it. Fortunately, there’s a shortcut for just this situation. Next time you accidentally hit that little “x,” try pressing Ctrl + Shift + T to reopen the tab.

Close Window/Tab
However, once you are actually ready to close a tab, or your last browser window, there is a shortcut that allows you to do so quickly: Ctrl + W

Spacebar Scroll
Instead of tiring out your finger playing with the scroll wheel on your mouse, Windows offers another option that utilizes the spacebar. Tapping Space as you hold Shift will have your screen jump down in full-screen chunks, rather than slowing crawling like the start of a Star Wars movie.

Mouse Wheel Functions
Speaking of the mouse’s scroll wheel, you can also use that to accomplish different things. For instance, it you want to quickly open a link in a new tab, clicking on it with the scroll wheel will do so in a single click, rather than the multi-click process you would otherwise go through.
