Hidden Space Bar Features

Ready for us to put a little ‘space’ in your mind today?

Most techie types whip around on your devices, much to the amazement of those that may be a little less technical and forget that not everyone knows everything.

Most of us have found various shortcuts that make things more efficient, so today’s tip is one of our favorites: the hidden features of the space bar.

When you’re using your computer and popping around the web, most pages require some scrolling in order to see all of the available content.

Instead of taking your hands of the keyboard to scroll with your touchpad or mouse, just tab the space bar to scroll down exactly one page.

To go back up exactly one page, do the same thing but hold the Shift key down while you tap the space bar.

For smartphone users, you can use the space bar for finishing a sentence and starting a new one by tapping the space bar twice in a row.

This will put a period at the end of your current sentence and set you up to continue on the next one!
