Be in Top Form When Filling Out Web Forms

Cloudeight Computer TipsWhen you are filling out web forms, did you know if you put your information in the wrong form field – for instance, you put your name in the email field – don’t delete it… you can highlight it and drag it to the correct field. You don’t have to retype it. Think about it: you normally would highlight the incorrect input anyway. So just remember, highlight the information and drag it to the right place in the web form.

The next time you enter your name in email field or your email in the name field, etc., don’t highlight and delete, highlight and drag it to where it belongs.

More form tips? OK here you go!

1. Use the tab key to go from one field to the next, instead of having to use your mouse.

2. Use shift-tab to move you backwards in the form

3. If you are in an area with a drop down box, you can type the first letter of the choices to select it. This is handy when you encounter a long list such as a list of states or countries. Here’s an example: If you are in Michigan, you can click m key until Michigan appears (since more then one state starts with the letter m), with Michigan selected from the list, press the Enter key.

4. Use the up/down arrow box to go through options on a form in a drop down menu.

5. If you are using tab key to get from one form field to the next, and you come to a box to check, you can check it by clicking your space bar. click the space bar again to remove the check.

6. If you are filling out a form and you have used that entry before on almost any web form, (i.e. name, address, etc), click the blank area twice and all prior entries will show.

Keep in mind that these tips work in many standard web forms, but not all.
