Recover Closed Browser Tabs

Sometimes I intend to only close one browser tab but accidentally close the browser itself, thus closing all the tabs. It’s one of those “oh bugger!” moments.

The good news is that there’s a solution, and it is Ctrl-Shift-T.

Open the browser again and press Ctrl-Shift-T, and all your previous tabs will reopen.

This also usually works after a system reboot. You know: you come into work and discover your system has rebooted itself overnight, and all those browser tabs you had open are gone…

Simplify Scrolling Through Web Pages and PDFs

Nobody likes wearing out their finger scrolling a mouse, do they?

Rather than endlessly scrolling through a web page or PDF document, use your keyboard’s space bar to scroll down a screen/page at a time.

Read what’s on your screen, tap the space bar, repeat.

Handy tip: to scroll back UP the page, hold down the Shift key while you tap the space bar.
