So I thought it would be a perfect time to share a few of the simple and brilliant functions you can perform with the CTRL key.
Highlights all of the text in a given field or space. Great if you need to copy something into a new digital space. (Pairs nicely with CTRL + C copy, and CTRL+V paste)
Looking for a particular word on a webpage, or perhaps you are scouring a PDF, or maybe you are looking for a particular set of words in a Google Doc. (Protip:If looking within a Google Doc/Spreadsheet/etc, make sure the page has fully loaded and that you've clicked within the document before you press CTRL + F )
If you ever need to quickly launch a new tab to search for something, try using CTRL + T, it will launch a new Tab for you and you can start your search without needing to use the mouse/trackpad
Made a mistake or want to quickly revert something back to the way it was, try using CTRL + Z to undo the last thing you did.
Sorry this one only works in the digital medium, no CTRL + Zing that wall you just painted.
Please note: If you are using a Mac
use the Command Key instead of CTRL
NOTE: You DO NOT need to press the + key to perform these functions, just the two keys pictures
