Helpful Internet Tips and Tricks
I'd like to share some of my internet tips and tricks with the Persona Paper community.
I think they'll be very helpful in the long run. Enjoy!
If you would like to search for public domain pictures:
Go to the Google search bar and paste these words ->
site:commons.wikimedia.org "public domain" <insert the picture you're looking for here>
Also, make sure to click the Images tab instead of the Web tab to see the pictures.
For example, I want to search for cats under public domain. I'll just put these in the search bar
site:commons.wikimedia.org "public domain" cat
And poof, now I have all the cat photos I can use that are copyright-free!
If you would like to re-open a closed tab in your browser:
Press Ctrl+Shift+T (try it with Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer)
If you would like to "screenshot" a part of an image:
Don't use Print Screen anymore! Instead, use the handy-dandy, Snipping Tool. Just find it in your Accessories folder. It's so much more convenient to use.
If you want to "zoom in" or "zoom out":
Hold the Ctrl button and scroll your mousewheel. Come on, try it!
If you want to open a link in a new tab:
Just click the link using the scrollwheel! I'm not kidding. That was actually new to me and I was amazed how easy it was. Ha!
And if you have "hanging" programs:
Then just press Ctrl+Alt+Del (also known as, the oldest trick in the book)
I hope my tips and tricks are able to help some of you here.
