I didn't know all of these techy shortcuts (she said slightly embarrassed because she's supposed to be a techy know-it-all).
In a very entertaining TED Talks video, David Pogue will make you laugh and you'll learn easy techy tips to save time and frustration with your computer and digital devices.
Here are three, watch the short video to learn the rest:
- When you're at a website and want to scroll down, don't use the scroll bar. It's too slow. Instead, "...hit the space bar. The space bar scrolls down one page." Hold down the shift key and press the space bar to scroll back up again.
- When you're typing on your smart phone, you don't have to do so much clicking to enter a period at the end of the sentence, click the space bar, and then activate the capitalize key to start your next sentence. Press the space bar twice to end a sentence. It adds a period, inserts one space, and capitalizes the next letter. (I love this one and didn't know about it.)
- Filling in a form online? Use the tab key to get around in the form fields. When you get to the one for State, don't bother clicking on the drop-down menu to select your state. Just click the first letter of the name of your state, repeatedly, until you see your state. For example, if you want Texas, click TT.
