Two Handy Quick Tips for Chrome, Edge, and Firefox plus a Chrome trick

If you use Chrome, Edge, or Firefox (or one of the many derivatives of those browsers) we think you’ll find these tips quite handy. 

How to Show recently viewed pages with a click!

Did you know you can show a list of recently visited pages from the current tab? You can. All you have to do is right-click on the “Back” button and you’ll see a list of recently visited pages. And as illogical as it sounds, this also works with the “Forward” button too. This works in Firefox too.


Did you know that you can detach a tab and open it in a new window? You can! All you have to do is drag the tab outside the active browser window. And you can also add it back to the original windows too. Just drag it back and drop it. You can also rearrange the order of the open tabs by dragging an open tab to wherever you want it. It’s easy to do!

Drag your downloads in Google Chrome

When you download a program using Chrome, you will see it on Chrome’s status bar (the bar along the bottom of the browser window). Did you know you can drag that download tab out of Chrome to your desktop or any folder on your computer?

Also, you’ll note at the far right edge of the download tab (which shows the file name) you’ll see a little down-arrow. If you click that arrow you’ll get options such as “Show in folder”. “Run”, “Always open files of this type” and “Cancel”.
