Tips for Chrome and Other Browsers

All of these tips work in Chrome, most work in other browsers too…

Nothing saves time like great keyboard shortcuts. They save you the time of hunting down the correct dialog box or menu item. The only problem with keyboard shortcuts is…remembering them. The best way to remember them is to use them.

We don’t expect you to remember all of these keyboard shortcuts, but you might want to use the ones you find most useful often, so you will commit them to memory. And you’ll find that many of these shortcuts work in Internet Explorer and Firefox too. To see if they do, just try them…you won’t hurt anything — they’ll either work, they’ll do something different than described below, or they won’t work at all. You will never know until you try!

    How can I make a save to folder dropdown to a specific folder of my own choice rather than always having only the option that’s in Win10?

      I don’t understand your question; do you mean for downloads?
