After accidentally closing down a tap on her computer, my wife recently asked me if I knew a quick way to reopen a tab.

Of course, you can go back into your history.  But, I thought, there’s got to be an easier way.

Turns out, there is.

If you accidentally close a tab online, simply press the following three keys Command + Shift + T.  Try it.  That tab you just closed should automatically reopen.

By the way, “Command +” is a magic trick if you spend a lot of time typing.

You can quickly copy text using Command + C.

You can paste text by typing Command + V

You can open a new page using Command + N.

Undo your most recent mistake simply by typing in Command + Z.  How come this one doesn’t work in all of life?  Forgot to pick up milk on the way home?  Command Z.  Forgot to turn in that paper on time?  Command Z.  Can’t believe what you just said in conversation?  Command Z.

Oh well.  Maybe someday.

There are many more typing shortcuts.
