Handy Shortcuts for Google Chrome and  Microsoft Edge (and Other Browsers Too)

NOTE: If you don’t have Chrome — or don’t use Edge — don’t worry. Many of these shortcuts work in Firefox and other browsers as well. The best way to find out if they work in your browser of choice is to try them. They’ll either work, won’t work, or will perform a different function than described.

Keyboard shortcuts are time savers. They can save you the time of hunting down the a 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 commit to memory the ones you find the most useful. It will save you time — we tells ya!

    Different topic but thought you might want to know this. Looking for info about upgrading my computer processor to handle Windows 11. Came across this https://www.wikihow.com/Upgrade-a-Processor.
    There was a recommendation to use a program called “Speccy” to see what might be possible. As soon as it started downloading, I canceled it, ran Hi-Bit uninstaller and Revo uninstaller to be certain that Speccy hadn’t invaded. Can’t find a trace of it so far. It comes from CCleaner.

      Speccy is a very good program. I have been using it for years!
      The only thing it does is giving you the detailed specification of your computer (including temperatures).
      It does not change anything!
      Thanks for the processor-upgrade-link by the way.

        The article you’re commenting on was about browser shortcuts – Speccy was not mentioned in our article. So I think you clicked on an advertisement link. We don’t control the products advertised on the site.

      Our article (you’re commenting on) was about browser shortcuts – Speccy was not mentioned in our article. So I think you clicked on an advertisement link. We don’t control the products advertised on the site. We don’t recommend Speccy or any other System Info products – other than windows built-in MSINFO32

    Just when I was sitting here thinking “How do I even remember these shortcuts?” with my poor tired old brain and there it was! Try to memorize the ones you use. Lol. This has been on my mind a long time, wondering. Lol. In all seriousness these are super tips and always try to remember what I can when you mention them. Thanks!
