We at SET Consulting would like to thank you for making this a successful year where we've multiplied both our staff and our revenue. If you're curious why our productivity training has been so popular, we're offering a 15% discount for any group training that is arranged prior to January 15th (it can be scheduled for a later date). This offer may be combined (for qualified companies) with the Maryland grant we mentioned last month, reducing the cost of training by almost 60%!*
Thank you again. We wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season!
Most of us use Internet Explorer every day. Unfortunately, few take advantage of the shortcuts and tricks available in this easy-to-use application. Here are a few timesavers from which we hope you'll benefit on a daily basis. I've placed asterisks next to the most helpful ones. Take 30 seconds and try them out...
Navigational & Functional Shortcuts
* Backspace - Brings you to the previous (web) page
Shift+Backspace - Brings you forward a page (if you've gone already gone backwards)
Ctrl+F - Find a word or phrase on the current page
* Shift+click a link - Opens a link in a new browser window. When you have a list of search results and want to maintain the list but still visit the results, Shift+clicking on a search result link will open it in a new browser window.
* Ctrl+Enter - After typing out the main part of a URL, inserts "http://www." before your text and ".com" after it. For instance, type setconsulting in your address bar and then press Ctrl+Enter. You'll be directed to "http://www.setconsulting.com"
* Alt+D - Places the cursor in the address bar, where you can type out a URL (Ctrl+F4 is similar, try it!)
Alt+A - Displays your Favorites
Alt+G - If you have the Google Toolbar installed, places your cursor in the Google search box
Ctrl+H - Displays your browser history
Alt+V, B - Restores / removes the status
bar (which likes to disappear)
Many of us will be buying presents for loved ones in the coming month. Just remember it's the thought (or gift) that counts, not its cost. Visit froogle.google.com to find a nifty price-grabbing search engine. While you'll want to be careful which vendors you select, you can often save 15-50% by "shopping around" at sites like froogle, pricegrabber and shopping.com. And, of course, some items might be best purchased on ebay...as discussed in our tip last month. Best of luck in your holiday shopping!
