Three Quick and Easy Tips For Windows

The tips below work in Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10

Spaced Out
You can highlight a word, a sentence, a paragraph or a page and delete the entire block of selected text by pressing the “Space” bar. Yes you can, and now you know!

Tabby Treats
Pressing the “Alt” “Tab” keys in sequence allows you to browse through your open windows.

A New Mail Message
Did you know that in most Email programs you can start a new message by simply pressing the Ctrl + “N” keys?

Open a new browser Window
If your browser is open, pressing CTRL + N will open a new browser window.

No EB, that’s not 4 tips – that’s 3 tips. CTRL+N only counts as one. I’m nothing if not fair!

    I can’t make the spacebar work as described. I can do it with a left click or double click though.

      This is not new. This tip has worked since at least Windows 98. You have to highlight the text you want to delete first, then press the Space bar.

      Highlight the text…. then press the Space bar
