This summer is an excellent time to sharpen your digital skill set. Take advantage of all this time!
I used Safari as my browser of choice before I switched to Chrome (I have a Mac). Here are 4 hacks to save time when you’re using Chrome for research:
1. Instead of clicking into the search/address bar every time you want to visit a new website, simply press Command + L to select the content in the address bar.
2. Instead of moving your cursor up to the top of an open tab and clicking the X to close it, press Command + W to close the page/tab you’re currently on.
3. You don’t need to type the “www.” or the “.com” at the beginning and end of every URL you want to visit. Just type in the domain and press Control + Enter. So type SuzanneRaga and Control + Enter, and you’ll get right to your website destination.
4. If you have a bunch of sites/tabs open, and you want to bookmark all of them for later, don’t bookmark each page one by one. Instead, press Command + Shift + D to save all the current tabs that are open in your window as bookmarks in a new bookmark folder.
