Top 10 computer mouse tips everyone should know

Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Mouse click Most computer users don't take full advantage of the computer Mouse. Below are computer mouse tips and secrets that help you get the full potential of your computer mouse and increase your overall productivity while on the computer.

Shift key and mouse click

Many text editors and programs allow you to highlight all or portions of text using the Shift key and the mouse. For example, place the cursor at the beginning of a paragraph in a text editor, hold down the Shift key and click at the end of the paragraph to highlight the full paragraph.

Bonus tip: Holding down the Alt key while dragging and highlighting text in a text editor will allow you to selectively highlight text. This can be useful if your paragraph or other text is in a column.

Take full advantage of the scroll wheel

Today, everyone is familiar with a mouse wheels ability to scroll up and down on a page. However, this wheel can also do so much more, below are just a few examples.

The mouse wheel is not just a wheel, it can also be used as a button. Pressing down on the wheel will act like a third mouse button. This can be used to open a web page in a tab by clicking the wheel on any link and can also be used to close a tab by clicking the wheel on any open tab.
Holding down the shift key while scrolling up or down in a Internet browser will quickly go back and forward between web pages.
Zoom in and Out on a web page, word document, excel spreadsheet, etc. by holding down the Ctrl key and scrolling up to zoom in and down to zoom out.
Move forward and backwards while browsing the Internet by holding down the Shift key and scrolling up and down. Scrolling down goes back and scrolling up goes forward.
Some mouse wheels can be pushed left or right to also move back and forward on a web page.

Select with double and triple click

Any word can be selected by double-clicking the word. If you want to highlight the whole paragraph, click the mouse button three times on any text in the paragraph.

Tip: If you double-click you can also double-click and then drag your mouse to select one word at a time.

Use the right-click

Take full advantage of the right-click any time you highlight text or wish to view the properties of an object. For example, if you highlight a file or text, you can right-click that highlighted item copy it and then right-click anywhere else to paste it.

Tip: If you right-click on any file or text and drag it while continuing to hold the right button, when you let go you will be given the option to move or copy that file or text. This saves you the extra step of having to right-click where you want to paste the item.

Tip: While in a browser pressing and holding Ctrl while clicking on any link will open that link in a new tab.

Ctrl key and mouse click or highlight

While holding down the Ctrl key you can left-click to select multiple objects or highlight multiple sections of text. For example, in Microsoft Windows you could hold down the Ctrl key and click to select multiple files at once. If you wanted to highlight different parts of a paragraph or web page, you could also hold down the Ctrl key and select each section you wanted to copy.

Tip: Mozilla Firefox users can also hold down the Ctrl key and individually click on each cell in a table they wish to copy or drag their mouse down a row to select just that row or text without selecting any of the other text in that table.

Use the mouse side buttons

Many new computer mice have buttons on the side of the mouse. These buttons can be programmed to do anything, however, by default the left-thumb button can be used to go back on a web page. This makes browsing the Internet more enjoyable since you do not need to move the mouse cursor to the browser back arrow button in order to go back a page.

Use the Windows Snap To feature

Take full advantage of the Windows mouse Snap To feature, which will automatically move your mouse to buttons that appear in a dialog box. For example, if you delete a file or close a window you may get a prompt asking you if you are sure you want to perform the task. With the Snap To feature enabled, the mouse cursor automatically moves to the Ok button, so all you will have to do is click the mouse button if you agree. This saves you the time of having to move the mouse cursor over to the Ok button and then click Ok. To enable this feature open the Mouse properties under the Windows Control Panel and check the Snap To check box under the Pointer Options tab.

Tip: While changing this feature we also suggest looking at other available options in the Mouse settings. For example, increasing the Motion speed can also help increase your productivity while using the mouse.


Manage the open window with the mouse

Double-click the top title bar of any window to maximize a window or if it is already maximized resize it to a window. You can also double-click the icon for the window in the top-left corner of the window to close that window.

Move the mouse with your keyboard

Instead of using the mouse that came with your computer you can also enable Windows to use the number pad as a mouse.

Customize your mouse

Finally, if you have a mouse with more than two buttons, installing the included mouse software will allow you to customize the mouse even more. For example, if you don't use the side buttons to move back and forth in a web page change it to something you do more often, such as switching between open windows or opening the calculator.

5 tricks every computer user needs to know

0
Sunday, September 15, 2013
In a perfect digital world, you could sit down at any computer or pick up any gadget and just use it. There wouldn't be a learning curve or workarounds. Unfortunately, that's never going to happen. With all due respect to the late Mr. Jobs, even Apple products don't always "just work."

Little problems and annoyances will pop up when you least expect it. That's why I've rounded up these five tricks. Keep them in the back of your mind and they'll get you out of the eventual jam.





1. Retrieve a memory card from a CD slot

Speaking of jams, let's start with one of my favorites. Slot-loaded CD/DVD/Blu-ray drives are sleek and stylish. Unfortunately, it's easy to accidentally jam non-disc items in there.

One of the most common objects is SD memory cards. This happens frequently for iMac users. After all, the DVD and memory card slots are right next to each other. However, it can happen with CompactFlash slots as well. And I'm sure someone's put a microSD card in an SD card slot.

The big question is how you get the card back out. In some cases, with the power off tweezers work just fine. However, with a slot-loaded CD drive, you don't have the room.

Instead, use non-corrugated cardboard. Cut it into the shape of an "L" and put the short end into the slot. Rotate the L so the short end gets behind the card, and then pull. Simple!

2. Recover photos from a damaged card

While we're on the subject of SD cards, let's talk about photos. A new, high-capacity SD card — smaller than a postage stamp — can hold thousands and thousands of photos. It's a photographer's dream.

Of course, if the card breaks, it becomes a photographer's nightmare. That's why I recommend taking a number of smaller SD cards on a trip. If one breaks or gets lost, you haven't lost as many photos.

Then there are times when a memory card just goes haywire. You put it in the computer and it shows up blank, it's corrupt or just missing files.

If your card reader isn't broken and the card isn't externally damaged, you have a bad card. But hope is not lost.

Grab a free photo recovery program. Zero Assumption Recovery and Recuva are two good ones.

Tip inside of a tip: These free file recovery programs find hidden or deleted items on memory cards. You can use them to recover files on flash drives and hard drives as well.

After a scan, you might see your photos and other missing files. When you recover the files, be sure to save them to your hard drive. Don't try to save them to the memory card!

Not only is the card dying, you'll overwrite the files you're trying to recover. Trust me; it doesn't end well.

3. Zoom in on websites quickly

You bought a new computer and it came with a big high-resolution monitor. Now the text on your favorite websites is way too small!

Fortunately, your browser has zoom shortcuts. In every major browser, pressing Control in Windows (Command for Macs) and then tapping the plus sign zooms in. Go too far? Control and the minus sign zooms out. Love this!

Want to go back to where you started? Control and 0 (that's a zero) puts it back to the default zoom level.

This way you can adjust every site you use to your individual taste. It will save your eyes and your sanity.
                                         
4. Use private browsing

Let's stay on browsers for a moment. Did you know your browser records everything you do?

It isn't just your search history, cookies and passwords, it saves images and code to a special cache for later use. Anyone who knows what they're looking for can see what you've been up to.

That's why the latest version of every major browser has a privacy mode. This stops your browser from recording things.

You can find private browsing mode in your browser's menu options. In Chrome it's called incognito mode. In most browsers, you can just use the shortcut Control + Shift + P. Again, Chrome is different, with Control + Shift + N.

Unfortunately, this doesn't always stop the browser from creating a cache. To clear that out, you can poke around the browser's options menu, or you can grab a third-party cleaner like CCleaner.

5. Take a screenshot

Need to show something computer-related to a distant friend or family member? Want to capture an error code for tech support? A screenshot is the solution.

As the name implies, it creates an image of your screen. And it isn't hard to do.

The easiest way to do this is with keyboard shortcuts. In Windows, just hit the Print Screen button on the keyboard (sometimes this is abbreviated as Prnt Scrn or in other ways). This saves the entire screen to the Windows clipboard. You can then paste it into an email or a graphics program.

On a Mac, Command + Shift + 3 takes a screenshot of the entire screen and saves it to the desktop. Command + Shift + 4 does the same thing, but you can select what area of the screen is captured.

Of course, sometimes you need a bit more control. Or perhaps you want to annotate the screenshot for the person receiving it.

In Windows Vista and up, go to Start>>All Programs>>Accessories and select the Snipping Tool. Click the upside-down triangle next to the New button to select Rectangular Snip. Then click and drag the red box over what you want to capture.

This will save a file you can edit, or you can paste the image right into an email. For Windows XP, you can use a third-party tool like Greenshot.

On a Mac, open Preview. Either go to Finder>>All Applications>>Preview or go to Spotlight, type in "Preview" and click the icon.

Go to File>>Take New Screenshot. Choose your screenshot type and go to town. You can add text, arrows and circles using the Edit Toolbar (View>>Show Edit Toolbar).

Once you're done, save it as an image and send it.
