Tame your computer – jump to it!

24 Nov

Some websites require you to scroll down a long page, and you probably use your mouse wheel or  perhaps you still drag the scroll bar. But did you know you can scroll faster and more precisely without ever having to take your hands off the keyboard?

Here’s how:

  1. Scroll down: press the spacebar.
  2. Scroll up: hold down the SHIFT key and press the spacebar.

Each time you press the spacebar, you will move one full screen at a time, making it easy to spot where you left off.

Obviously this cannot be used in any software package where pressing the spacebar would add a space – such as in Word – but if you find yourself reading a very long PDF file you might like this screen-sized jumping trick.
