OPEN A CLOSED TAB

You may know that Ctrl+T will open a new blank tab, if not you do now, but did you know that Ctrl+Shift+T re-opens your most recently closed tab?

SWITCH TO THE NEXT AND PREVIOUS TABS

If you are like me, you may end up with so many tabs open it’s a wonder the computer still works. A quick way to jump between the tab on the left or right of the select tab is to use the Ctrl+Tab to move to the next tab to the right and Ctrl+Shift+Tab to move to the next tab to the left.

If using a Mac try using Command+Option+Right Arrow to jump one tab to the right and use Command+Option+Left Arrow to jump one tab to the left.

CLOSE TABS THE EASY WAY

A shortcut to close the selected tab is to press Ctrl+W instead of clicking the X.

OPENING LINKS IN TABS

Some links open in the current tab while others open in a new tab. In order to be sure a link opens in a new tab, hold the Ctrl key when you click the link, it will load the link into a new tab but remain on your current page. Similarly, using Ctrl+Shift and clicking a link will open the link in a new tab and switch you to it.

Lastly, hold the Shift key when you click a link to open it in a new window.
