Larilyn's Tip of the Week:  Quick Web Page Scrolling

If you don't know me by now.....

if you dont know me by now should come as no surprise that today's tip is a keyboard shortcut!  

So let's just jump into this one.  Let me set the stage for you.  Thanksgiving is coming up.  Your family is all gathering together for a big festive dinner.  And YOU have been tasked with bringing a pie.

You've never made a pie.  You debate buying a pie.  But you know that homemade is better, and you feel like you could handle it if you just could find a good recipe.

So you turn to Pinterest.....or Google.....or whatever online search you deem best.  You find a link to what looks like a promising pie with good reviews.  You click through to the cooking blog post anxious to see the recipe.

And you are met with a ten-page dissertation written about how this pie changed the life of the woman who owns the blog  Detailing the circumstances and experiences she had as she hand-picked each ingredient.....and on and on.....

You can use the spacebar to easily scroll through web pages one page (screen) worth at a time.  

When you are on a webpage, the Space bar can act as a scroll-down button.  It will scroll an entire page worth.  And if you want to scroll up, you just hit Shift + Space and it will scroll up an entire page worth.

So when you come to those long-winded bloggers, just you find the best pie recipe in the world!
