Tech Tip - Control Shortcuts

Have you ever been on a webpage or document looking for something specific amongst a mountain of text? Simply hold down the Control key (Ctrl) and then press the letter F key. A box will appear that allows you to type in the word(s) you're looking for, and then you can scroll through the page and see only the parts where that word(s) is mentioned.

Don't you hate when you are on a website and when you click on a link a new webpage opens up over the page you were just looking at? To prevent this, hold down the Control key (Ctrl) and then click the link. The new webpage will open in a new tab in your browser. So now you'll have the original page open in one tab and the new page open in another tab. Welcome to "tabbed browsing!"
