Quick Tip: Keyboard Shortcut To Go “Page Backward” or “Page Forward” In Your Web Browser

These two keyboard shortcuts work in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge for sure; and, may work in the other web browsers as well.

  1. When wanting to go a page backward in your web browser you typically mouse click on the “back button”. You can also perform the same function on the keyboard by hitting the “ALT + “left arrow” keys.
  2. When wanting to go a page forward in your web browser you typically mouse click on the “forward button”.  You can also perform the same function on the keyboard by hitting the “ALT + “right arrow” keys.

Quick Tip: Did you know you can perform a search from your browser’s address bar?

I have found that many folks at home do not know that you can perform an internet search by typing what you are looking for in the browser’s address bar. For example, I use Google Chrome. I can perform a Google Search by going to the address bar (at the top) and typing in what I am looking for. This saves me from having to go to Google.com to perform a search. This also works in the browsers on your smartphones and tablets, as well.

Depending on your browser, the default search engine or provider can be changed in your browser’s settings.  Some people like Google, other’s like Bing (and so forth).
