Press Tab When Filling In Forms

When you’re filling in an online form and you’re moving your cursor from one field to the next as you enter information such as your name, address, and so on, don’t use your mouse to get the cursor from field to field –


Fill in a field, then press the Tab key: the cursor will move to the next field. Fill in that field, and press Tab again: again the cursor will move to the next field.

Try it. You’ll be amazed at how much this simplifies the laborious task of filling in online forms. This works for most other programs too. (But sadly not all.)

You can also use the Tab key in Excel to move from cell to cell, or in Word tables to move from cell to cell.
