Here’s a nifty Gmail tip:
There’s always little tips and tricks to gmail and I don’t know of a single person that knows them all. I may have accidentally found another feature (unless someone else found it first). Let’s say you have 20 emails in a row that you want to delete. Clicking 20 times before you can delete them is annoying. Click the first one. Hold shift and click the last one. All the emails between the first and the last ones you just clicked will be selected for you.
A URL Trick:
Do you ever get tired of typing the “http://www.” and “.com” and wish there were an easier way? There is and it works in Firefox, IE, and Opera (and very likely more). Type the name of the website. For Daily Cup Of Tech, it would be “dailycupoftech” and leave off the other stuff. Hold Control and hit enter. The extra gets filled in for you. Depending on the browser you’re using, Shift+Enter and Ctl+Shift+Enter take you to .net and .org domains (respectively). So stop typing those extra 15 keystrokes. Even if you’re a fast typist like me (100+ wpm sometimes), it still saves you a lot of time.
