Six useful browser shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts are great. They help you be more productive and get things done faster. Beyond universal commands like copy and paste, browsers like Google Chrome & Firefox have some unique shortcuts that'll save you a whole bunch of time and effort. Here are 6 we think you're going to love:

1. Recovering a closed tab:

Ever close a tab by accident? Undo with Control+Shift+T on Windows or Command+Shift+T on a Mac.

2. Reveal the search box:

Control+F or Command+F will bring up a search box and allow you to find certain words within your browser.

3. Print a webpage in a jiffy:

Press Control+P or Command+P.

4. Keep your session private:

Enable private or incognito mode and the browser will stop tracking your history, cookies and passwords. For Firefox users, press Control+Shift+P or Command+Shift+P, for Chrome press Control+Shift+N or Command+Shift+N.

Firefox

Chrome

5. Increase and decrease text size:

Hold down the Control or Command key and press the + or - to increase or decrease the size of text. Control or Command + 0 will reset the text.

6. Reset a slow loading page:

Page not loading? Try Control+R or Command+R to refresh your webpage.
