1. If you watch movies or shows on your computer laying on your side, rotate the screen 90° without moving your computer by changing portrait to  Landscape (or landscape to Portrait) and get comfy.

2. Before throwing away a used post it note, if you’re near a computer run the sticky edge between the keys o
n your keyboard to pick up any dirt there might be between the keys.

3. Enable “Undo Send” under “Gmail Settings”->”Labs”. It allows you to “undo” by adding a few second long
delay from when you click send to when Gmail actually sends it.

4. To get the volume or brightness to your exact preference, you can fine tune the settings in smaller increments by adding Shift + Option.

5 Use a binder clip to keep your computer headphones tidy while you’re not using them.

6. Got lots of User’s Manuals? Keep all your user’s manuals in the cloud … when you buy something new, go
to the manufacturer’s site and upload the manual to Google Drive or Dropbox.

7. When streaming Netflix on a computer, if the stream quality is sub-par, press control+alt(opt)+shift+s
in order to change the buffering rates. Changing to 3000 forces HD video.

8. The 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes of staring at the computer screen, look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds to avoid eye strain.

9. If you’re sick of being your family’s “computer guy”, install Ad-block on their computers.

10. Press F2 to immediately rename a file, no more slow double clicks.Website
