Here are some shortcuts that you can use to save time while web browsing:

  • Jump to the address bar

You can quickly move the cursor to the address bar by pressing CTRL+L on a PC or Command+L on a Mac.

  • Toggle full-screen

You can toggle full-screen mode on a PC by pressing F11 and on a Mac by pressing Control+Command+F.

 

You can use these shortcuts in conjunction with shortcuts mentioned in previous tips for zooming in and out of a web page or switching between tabs.
