Tuesday Tip: CTRL L

If you are a fan of learning new keyboard shortcuts, this one is fast and easy and should be added add to your list.

For PC users – when you are browsing the Internet and want to quickly and easily get to a different website; instead of moving your cursor up to the address bar – simply hit ‘CTRL’ and ‘L’ on your keyboard.

This shortcut takes you immediately to the address bar and highlights the existing websites text so that all you have to do is start typing in the next website you want to go to. I found it to be a quick way to keep your fingers on the keyboard and stay focused on what you’re doing.

I tried it on the following popular browsers; Chrome, Edge, Mozilla and Brave and it worked on all of them.

If you are a Mac user – your shortcut should be ‘CMD’ and ‘L’. Note: Since I don’t own a Mac, I am unable to substantiate what the Internet claims here. So, I would love to hear back from our Mac audience if this isn’t what you find.

Now get back to work!
