Using the internet is a necessity in most people’s day to day lives. However, only some of us have grasped the concept of how to use internet shortcuts to our advantage. Internet shortcuts that you never knew about might be just what you need to save time while browsing the web.
It can be extremely frustrating when you accidentally close a tab that you needed or get kicked off of a site. Instead of opening up a new tab and starting the process all over again, all you need to do is press: CTRL + SHIFT + T. This little shortcut will open up the last closed tab. This will help you to carry on with your business in an efficient manner.
Sometimes, when searching for images, you might be interested in finding out the source or more information about the picture. Instead of going back to the search engine, you can simply stay on the image and press “s” + Right click. This will do a reverse search on the current image that you are looking at. Alternatively, if this is not simple enough for you, you can drag the image that you are looking at and place it in the search bar. It is as simple as that.
Often when you use the internet, you will find different bits and pieces that you want to look at without leaving your current page. You might be interested in viewing a link for example. Instead of having to follow the link from the current page you are on you can simply hold down CTRL when clicking on the link. This simple internet shortcut will open up the link in a completely new tab.
These are the more practical of the internet shortcuts that you can use to simplify your life. If you want to have a bit of fun with your Google page, you should consider using any of the following:
Play a game in Google images: All that you need to do is type in the name Atari Breakout into Google and enjoy the game.
Barrel Roll: when you are bored at work and want to have a few seconds of fun, go onto Google. Type in “Do a Barrel Roll” and watch what happens next.
Arcade Game: finally, why not consider turning Google into an arcade game? That’s right – it really is possible! Search for Zerg Rush and attempt to stop the “O’s” from appearing on your screen.
Knowing how to make your internet work better for you is only the beginning. Shortcuts and fun hacks can only do so much if you are working off of a slow internet speed. Having slow internet can be extremely frustrating, especially if you have a business to run.
