Hot off the press, the first every Tuesday Tech Tips. Each week I will be releasing a few very basic tech tips around a general theme that will help you function in your day to day life.


This week's theme...

1) WHERE DID MY TEXT GO??!!

Ctrl+Z

One of the best tools at your disposal is Ctrl + Z. This is the shortcut for the "Undo" command. When something happens and you need to undo it, immediately on your keyboard press the Control button and the Z button at the same time. This comes in handy especially when you accidentally delete a large chunk of text.

2) YEAH...I SHOULDN'T HAVE SENT THAT...

Email-Undo Send

Have you ever hit send on an email and realized about 3 microseconds later you forgot the attachment? Or maybe your temper cooled off and what sounded perfectly reasonable 5 minutes ago is actually the equivalent of a raging dragon? Outlook is here to save the day!

3) I NEED THAT BACK!

Ctrl+Shift+T

For whatever reason, whether I think I'm done with a tab or I accidentally close the wrong one, I often wish I hadn't closed a tab in Chrome almost immediately after I do. Rather than try to open a new tab and refind the page or look through my history, Chrome offers a really handy trick! Press the Control, Shift, and T buttons on your keyboard at the same time and the last tab you closed opens back up. Even better, you can do it multiple times to open up the last few tabs you've closed!!
I hope these tips will help make your day to day life a little easier! Let me know if you have any questions or need help!
