Web Browsing - Tips & Tricks

Best Tips:

Jump to your Address Bar

To highlight the address bar address use Ctrl + L or Alt + D.

Scroll through web pages

Did you know that you can scroll one page down a webpage using the Spacebar? To scroll one page up use Shift + Spacebar.

Cycle through browser tabs

Do you often have multiple tabs open on your browser? Use Ctrl + Tab to move to the next tab or Ctrl + Shift + Tab to move to the previous tab. Ctrl + Num (1, 2, 3…) will  activate that specific tab. If you have more than 9 tabs open, Ctrl + 9 will go to the last tab.

Zoom your web pages

Next time you need a larger view of that hard to read text, try Ctrl + (plus) to zoom in.  Ctrl + - (minus) will zoom out. To go back to 100% view use Ctrl + 0 (zero).

Toggle Fullscreen to maximize your view

If you don’t currently need that menu bar or address bar use F11 to go to full screen.  F11 will restore the screen back to the previous position/size.
