Tech Tip of The Week: How to Quickly Move Between Tabs

Working on a project and opened way too many tabs to navigate? Finding it difficult to switch between the calendar and inbox in Outlook? This week we have just the quick tip for you!

You can move between tabs in a browser quickly by pressing “Control” if you are using a Windows computer, or “Command” if you are using a Mac computer, and “Tab”.  This shortcut will take you to the next tab to the right.

You can also move directly to a specific tab by pressing Control/Command + [insert tab number here]. The tabs are assigned a number with the tab open on the far left being number 1 and the numbers going up as the tabs open to the right.

This tip can also be used in the Outlook application (not on the website) to switch views. Control/Command + 1 will switch to the Mail view, Control/Command + 2 will switch to the Calendar views.
Replacing the number with 3 will show the Contacts view, 4 the Tasks view, 5 the Notes view, 6 the Folder list, 7 the Shortcuts, and 8 will open the Journal.
