Computer Tips & Tricks You Should Know

If you’re a more hardcore computer user, you might be thinking that you already know all of the tips & tricks that could help you. However, you might be missing out on many of these tips that could help you with your daily work. Check out these tips & tricks to use while you’re on your computer.

Closed Tabs

Have you ever accidentally closed a tab that you were using? It can be a huge annoyance trying to find the website you’re on so you can get back to normal. However, you do have a trick to getting your tab back.

All you need to do is press Ctrl + Shift + T on your browser window. You’ll then get access to the browser tab that you were working on.

Window Snapping

For those that use multiple monitors to work, it can be great having a lot of space for your various windows. However, more windows mean you’re going to have to spend some time setting them up. You can use window snapping though to get your windows how you want them faster.

To do this, you’ll want to press the Windows key + arrow keys in the direction you want your window. The window will then snap onto whatever monitor and side you’re looking to use. For those having multiple windows on a single monitor, you can drag the window to the side to snap each window to have the same amount of space.

Wi-Fi Password

Whether you have people coming over or you’re setting up a new wireless device, you might want to have your wi-fi password handy to connect to the internet. However, you might realize that you don’t have your password written down even though your desktop is connected to the internet. However, Windows has a built-in function to help you find your password.

All you have to do is go to the Network and Sharing Center in Windows. From there, you should right-click on your Wi-Fi network connection and go to properties. You can then select Show Characters to find the exact password for your Wi-Fi network.

Emoji Keyboard

Sometimes, you might want to send some emojis to your friend on your computer, but you don’t want to use a search engine to use emojis. With Windows 10, you can bring up the Emoji Keyboard to use any emoji you want.

To do this, you just need to press the Windows Key + a period. You’ll then be able to select emojis from various categories or by typing in the search bar.
