Chrome Shortcut tips

Give a choice between the various browsers I will use Chrome. I find it more responsive, nicer to use and also the integration of plugins is so useful. The ability to sign in and maintain your history and bookmarks against multiple devices is really handy as well

There is though a whole world of shortcuts they you may not know about that add another level of awesomeness to Chrome. For example one I have found myself searching for is if you hold down CTRLand the – key it opens the last closed tab.

There is the situation where you may need to restart chrome but don’t want to close all the tabs you have open. There are two options, CTRL SHIFT D will save all your open tabs to a folder, if you then right click on the folder when your back in chrome it reopens the, for you. The other option if you can do this is in the address bar type chrome://restart. This Wil then close Chrome by reopen the tabs you had open.

Digital Note Taking

I’m starting again on an experiment to see if I can move completely digital with notes and to stop using paper. I don’t think I will completely remove paper d making notes in a book. Sometimes it’s not appropriate and also at times it feels slicker to just use a Pen and paper.

I had tried a couple of years ago to make the move but never really committed due to practicality and also gaps in technology. I had tried to use Evernote which I am a fan of but they had started to introduce barriers with features that were free but now charge for. Also this was a personal account and never felt right. However when my last job switched to office365 I started to use OneNote more but struggled with the switch,

However having started a new job a few weeks ago and agile and smart working being encouraged with hot desking it’s time to give it another go and with the ability to work remote it’s time to give it another go. I have access again to One note but armed with an IPad which also has a data sim, I’m able to freely capture notes digitally when its not easy to use my laptop. I have started to capture copies of my physical notes as well as scans. I need to give some thought to my note structure though as this is something I find different in OneNote compared to Evernote.
