Tech tips for the basic computer user

October 20, 2008 Links Comments Off

During my daily perusing of the New York Times, I stumbled upon this article titled, “Tech tips for the basic computer user.” It’s chock-full of useful little tips, such as:

  • How to enlarge the text on any webpage (Hold down CTRL and + or -)
  • Pressing the spacebar scrolls you down one screenful in your web browser.
  • Hold down ALT + TAB (on the PC) and Option + TAB (Mac) to switch between applications without using your mouse.
