Skip The Slowpoke Mouse When You Surf The Net


Q. I surf the Internet a lot and have to use the mouse to move back and forth between pages. But I hate the mouse. Isn’t there a faster way to move around using the keyboard?

A. There is and, in fact, it is much faster. It works equally well in Microsoft Explorer and Netscape Navigator. Here are the keyboard shortcuts:

  • Alt+Left arrow for moving a page back.

  • Alt+Right arrow for moving forward.

  • Shift+Tab to maneuver through links.
