Do you love hacks from life? Here’s 16 best tech hacks to make you day:
1) Get and use the Chrome extension to get quick summaries of articles online. The plugin shows you the gist of the article so you can figure out if you want to read the whole thing.
2) Use Ctrl / Cmd+Shift+T.
3)To reopen an accidentally closed browser tab, paste your article into Google Translate and listen to it. This makes it easier to pick up errors and can help you pick up minor typos from the tool itself.
4) Run your writing or document past PolishMyWriting.com to clear typos, grammar errors and help with writing styles.
5) If you save your PowerPoint presentation to. PPS instead of. PPT, your file will go to slideshow mode when you open it.
6) Would you like to charge your phone more quickly? Put it in mode for the airplane. (Editor’s note: we did a little experiment on this and found that the difference was only 3 minutes, but technically it’s still “faster”)
7) Do many files have been stored in different cloud storage services? Use Otixo.com.
8) Want a quick way to unfreeze a frozen phone for an easy and secure way to manage them all from the same spot? Connect it to your charger.
9) Saving an Excel file as a. XLSB will shrink the size by half or 75%.
10) If you buy a product from Amazon and the price drops within 7 days, you can get a refund on the price difference.
11) Click the scroll button of your mouse to open it in another browser tab.
12) Don’t want your Google search to be location-based? Go to google.com/ncr afterwards. NCR stands for “no redirecting country.”
13) To ensure that someone doesn’t give you a fake number, read the number incorrectly back to them and see if they’re correcting you. If they’re correcting you, it’s the right number.
14) Did you learn a new word, but not sure how to use it? Google then refine the search results to “News” to see the word in practical use.
15) Just google”[ location] time” or”[ location] weather” to get the time and weather of a city. Example “LA Time” or “LA Weather.”
16) Just tap the arrow to switch from left to right or right to left to shoot Panorama photos on iOS in a different direction.
