Hello! Whether you're a KOSD co-worker, BPSD friend, or another Tech Coach in the US, thanks! Somehow you've found my site! I hope that it can be of use to you. Now that the school year has calmed down and we are at the end of the first 9 weeks, I will start my blog with the first Tuesday Tech Tip.
This week I'm starting with one of my favorite tips, the PC keyboard shortcut ctrl+F. Control + F can be used to find words and phrases. This shortcut is universal and works with web browsers (Chrome, Internet Explorer, & Firefox), PDF viewers and Word Documents.
You are looking at a website (in Chrome) and want to find the links to all of the different PowerSchool Products.
1. Press "Control+F" (a little box pops up in the top corner)
2. Type the word/phrase you want to find
3. Hit Enter
4. You will see that the computer tells the amount of times it appears on the page, highlights the word, and shows where it is found on the scroll bar.
This tip is particularly useful for finding important phrases in documents or when viewing search results from Google.
