A Technology Tip

  • Technology

Most of us spend many hours a day browsing the Web. If you are reading an article, or scanning through a long page, it is a pain to reach for the mouse and use the scroll bars, and hitting the down cursor key will only move you one line at a time. Not very fast or efficient.

There is an easier way – pressing the spacebar once will jump you down one screen. This works in all PC and Mac browsers regardless of how big your font size is. Hitting the spacebar once will magically jump you to a full fresh page of text. It doesn’t matter what magnification you are viewing the page at – it just works.

And if you want to go in the other direction – pressing Shift+Spacebar and you will jump up one screen at a time.

Happy surfing everyone.
