Tip of the Week: Some Keyboard Shortcuts You May Not Know

Everyone knows some keyboard shortcuts. The normal ones that allow you to copy, cut, paste, lock your computer, select all, and more. Today, we thought we would tell you about some browser-based shortcuts that can definitely save you time and effort. 

The first thing you are going to want to do if you want to try these shortcuts out right now is to open up a new browser window so that you can follow along with the blog. 

Jump to Address Bar: Ctrl+L

Say you are looking at a recipe from another culture and there are ingredients that you aren’t familiar with. By pressing Ctrl+L you will highlight the text in the address bar. This will allow you to simply type in your query or web address and not have to wrestle with the url without using your mouse at all.

Add the Dot Com: Ctrl+Enter

Do you want an easy way to navigate to a website without having to type out the whole URL? As long as you know the domain name of the site, you can press Ctrl+Enter and it will fill in the “www.” and “.com” bringing you to the website you want to go to without having to enter it manually. 

Open a Search in a New Tab: Alt+Enter

Let’s return to the recipe example. If you would like to search a specific term, but you don’t want to navigate away from the page, typing a query in the address bar and pressing Alt+Enter will automatically open up the search in a new tab.

Open a Website in a New Tab: Ctrl+Alt+Enter

Pressing Ctrl+Alt+Enter will combine the two functions. It will open the domain in a new tab. This is super useful to navigate to a new site quickly. Try it now using “Wikipedia”.

Open Clear Browsing Data: Ctrl+Shift+Delete

After you are done browsing, you may want to delete cookies or some other stuff you might have picked up while you were browsing. Pressing Ctrl+Shift+Delete will open up the page where you can control these settings and clear your browsing data.

These shortcuts will definitely help you navigate your web browser a little bit more efficiently. For more great tips and tricks return to our blog next week.
