Space Bar Reminder

That space bar that you take for granted actually has some hidden tricks up its sleeve.

Us tech guys sometimes forget that many of the shortcuts and tricks we use aren't very well known by the general public.

One of those hidden keystroke options comes courtesy of the humble space bar.

On both computers and smartphones, the space bar can make some common tasks much quicker.

On your computer, you can simply tap the space bar whenever you want to page down on a website, which allows you to keep your hands on the keyboard instead of having to use your mouse.

On your smartphone, tapping the space bar twice at the end of a sentence automatically adds a period and gets you ready for your next sentence.

Now you can fully utilize the space bar with these tips!
