SUMMARY:
– Don’t wait til the end of the day to filter out your inbox. Instead, at the top of every hour, check your email and sort through it accordingly. This way, it won’t get too overwhelming
– If you have messages that require one or two sentence responses, just deal with them now. There’s no need to push these aside for later if you can nip them in the bud right away.
– Go through all the groups you follow and un-friend those who you no longer care to hear from. This will significantly lessen your notifications throughout the day.
– Ctrl + S lets you save the document. Because accidentally losing a document you forgot to save can really ruin an otherwise good day.
– Ctrl + Delete lets you erase the word just after the curser. And Ctrl + Backspace lets you delete the word before the curser. Total time-saver.
– Accidentally close a tab while working in Chrome? Don’t freak out – simply press Ctrl + shift + t and the tab will magically reopen.
– If you’re reading through something online and need to find a certain word, this trick prevents you going crosseyed looking for it. Simply hold down Command + F if you’re on a Mac; on a PC, you’ll get the same search bar by holding down Ctrl + F.
– Looking for a word that sounds like another word? Using a tilde symbol like this: ~. It tells Google to search for a synonym for a word.
– If you’re looking for a site that relates to a site you already know, put “related:” in the search box before the site you’re referring to.
– If you can’t discipline yourself to stay off these time-sucking sites, there are apps you can download to help monitor your time spent on them.
– And if you decide to take on the task of monitoring yourself, simple things like turning off your messages on your computer or putting your phone on airplane mode can keep you focused on what you need to do.

    Press alt+f4 In a Fortnite match so you get whatever skin you last killed, keep in mind it will replace your current one until you turn your PC off.

    On the finger things on the keyboard you missed a key… It’s the space. Key

  39. Dawn Berkshire on October 22, 2019 at 4:53 pm

    What about creating macros for Microsoft Word for tasks you do all the time in the program? You can record a macro and attach a key shortcut to it?



  40. James Herron on October 22, 2019 at 4:54 pm

    A trick for those people who use Bing: To get a quick typing test, just type “typing test” in the box.



  41. Alod Agako on October 22, 2019 at 4:54 pm
