These days, more and more work is getting done inside web browsers. Every so often, you need to switch from one browser to another to use certain apps or access certain sites. This week I’d like to share these speedy shortcuts you can use no matter what browser you’re working in.
These should all work the same in Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and even the new Microsoft Edge:
Zoom in or out to get a better view » CTRL + + [plus sign] or Ctrl+ – [minus sign]
Return your zoom level to 100% » CTRL + 0
Jump to the next tab » CTRL + Tab,
Jump to the previous tab » SHIFT + CTRL + Tab
Jump directly to one of first eight tabs » CTRL + (number) Ctrl+1 through Ctrl+8
Jump to the last open tab » CTRL + 9
Along with zooming, one of my favorites is F11 to toggle on and off the full-screen view. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Got any others that you couldn’t live without?
