Get ready to dazzle your co-workers with these little-known shortcuts!
Productivity Hack #1 – Re-open Internet Tabs
“Oh no! I had 10 tabs open and closed the wrong one! Ugh, how do I get back to the site I need?”
This one is easy…simply click Control, Shift and the letter T (ctrl + shift + T). The tab instantly reopens!
Productivity Hack #2 – Start a New Page
You’re creating or editing a document and want to start a new page. You hit the enter button repeatedly until a page break appears. But there’s an easier way…
Simply click Control and Enter (Ctrl + Enter)
Productivity Hack #3 – Change Indents on a Bulleted List
If you often work with bullet points or numbered lists in Word, this hack is for you. It is a simple way to move an item in a bulleted or numbered list up a level. For example, you type a list that looks like this:
- Heading one
- Point number one
- Point number two
- Heading two (oops, I accidentally indented this too far!)
To move “3.” back to become Heading item ‘2’, simply put cursor in front of the word ‘Heading’ after the ‘3.’ and click the ‘shift’ and ‘tab’. This moves the indent back to the left.
How cool is that? Stay tuned to this blog for more shortcuts, hacks, tips and tricks to turn you into an Excel Expert, MS Word Warrior, and all-around office rock star.
