The­re are col­leagues who can do ever­ything with just a few clicks. The­se 4 short­cuts help you save time and con­cen­tra­te on the real­ly important things:

  1. CTRL‑D: Always too many tabs open, but afraid to clo­se them? Sim­ply press Ctrl‑D to book­mark immedia­te­ly. This way you can access it again and again and final­ly clean up your brow­ser.
  2. Alt-Arrow: You lost your ori­en­ta­ti­on in the search engi­ne jung­le? Links and clicks lead you to a new topic, the brow­ser histo­ry gets lon­ger and at some point the over­view is lost, but the­re was this important page in bet­ween. By pres­sing the Alt-arrow key you can easi­ly scroll back and forth.
  3. CTRL‑W: The screen is bul­ging over with pro­grams, docu­ments and fol­ders open? With Ctrl‑W you clo­se the cur­r­ent­ly ope­ned win­dow without a mou­se click and get peace of mind. But don’t for­get to use Ctrl‑S to save the docu­ment.
  4. CTRL-Shif­t‑T: Here is the res­cue for all mul­ti-tab users. Who doesn’t know it – you could final­ly get yourself to clo­se a tab and then it hap­pens: The who­le brow­ser was clo­sed and the tabs were dele­ted. Don’t panic, with Ctrl-Shif­t‑T you can res­to­re recent­ly clo­sed tabs (in the Goog­le Chro­me Brow­ser). Just save it as a book­mark for secu­ri­ty after­wards.
