Mouse and Key Clicks

  1. If you double click on a word in a document, online or in email, it highlights it so it can be deleted, copied or modified.
  2. Triple-clicking a word will highlight the entire section or paragraph. 
  3. Same thing for double  and triple clicking on the URL in our browser. It makes it easier to delete.
  4. The squiggly line character is in the upper left-hand portion of your keyboard is called a tilde (pronounced "till-deh").
  5. Want to delete something without it going into the recycle bin? [SHIFT] + [Del] will give you a delete confirmation box. Clicking ‘Yes’ (be sure this is what you want to do!) will delete the file bypassing the Recycle Bin.
  6. In many software programs you can use [CTRL] + [Z] to undo the last action.  [CTRL] + [Y]  will let you redo the action.
  7. Want to drop down on a web page without having to scroll or use your mouse on the side bar? You can press the [Space Bar] to scroll down one screen. Add the [Shift] key to scroll back up to where you were on the page.
  8. You don’t have to type “http://www” into your Web browser. You can just type "".
  9. Want to copy and paste an entire document? Instead of highlighting from top to bottom, hit Control + A to select everything.
