A Scanner In Your Pocket with Office Lens

Office LensDespite our attempts to become a paper-free society, the world is still driven by shredded and pressed tree pulp with words printed on them.

Tech Tip: Remember Ctrl-Shift-T to Get Your Tabs Back

Posted by on in How To

chromeWe’re all about keyboard shortcuts here at Weston. They are a boon to productivity if you don’t have to take your hands off your keyboard to use your mouse. We’ve already covered Word and Outlook keyboard shortcuts, but here is one keyboard shortcut for your browser that you should know: Ctrl-Shift-T.

What does this handy shortcut do? It re-opens the last closed tab. We’ve all been there: Accidently closing a browser tab that you meant to keep open. Hit Ctrl-Shift-T and your tab will come back. Hit it multiple times to bring back the last several closed tabs in your history.

Yes, each browser has a way you can do this with the mouse, but this short cut works just fine in Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox, so you don’t have to learn another interface.

Do you have a favorite browser shortcut? Share it in the comments below!
