Tips and Tricks working at your desk

Do you spent hours and hours of time working infront of your computer and wonder why it takes so long to do various task? Well Im gonna help you out or mmmm this is my blog… Well Im just gonna list various tips Ive learned working on your PC to minimize working time and can do more stuff in a day. Feel free to comment if you got more suggestion not in this post.

1. Looking for a term in Google faster. English is not my second language so if theres a term I dont understand I go to google.com and type: “define: [your term]” and you will see list of meanings straight up. If your on a mobile phone eg iphones, all you do is highlight the word and choose look up. Similar for the desktop highlight the word, right click and look for word in google.

2. Use CTRL + F to find information quickly. This is very useful when you are browsing a site that goes all the way down this is often when you do a search on google.

3.Type “calc” for calculator. Quick access. This is when you want a quick access to a calculator. Go to Start and use the Run command. This is easily accessible in Windows 7 and windows 10 of course easier if you pin the Icon to the task bar unless your PC is not yours then this is just one of the thing you can do.

4. Easy access your programs. Well this is given all your most used program you must put in your task bar below. And all the not so used in the desktop.

5. Always on top window. Do you often get annoyed switching windows from front to back? Sometimes when you’re trying to read something and watching a movie or tv at the same time on your computer the other window gets in the way. Or you just want a particular window to always be on top when your working. Here is the software for it. Always On Top .

6. Not to get bored working! This is usually the case when your working on a project or on your own. This will make you really bored real quick and most likely turn away from your computer and do something else(Unless of course you really love that office job!). To combat this, if you have a TV tuner card, watch tv while your working. You might think that this would make you wanna work less. But I assure you combining this together or to be exact combining pleasure with work is a great way to keep you doing what you need to do. You can also watch a movie while you work, put an earphone so you hear the dialog from the movie even you dont have your eyes on the window. Just use your peripheral vision.

7. Make sure you fill that thirst. Always have a bottle of drinks handy on your desk(May I suggest ice cold water). Working on your computer for a long time can make you really thirsty fast. So to save you from travelling back and forth to the kitchen why not take the drink with you.

8. Minimize Eyestrain. We all know this when working straight hours with your computer, our eyes just screaming for a time out and will results with some serious headache. So in order to minimize this tell yourself to take a break every hour. And look at something other than your monitor for at least 10 seconds. Also try to blink as much as you can. Even better go outside for a little while, look up in the sky, go chat a bit with your colleague, anything to change the pace and environment and hopefully when you get back, you feel refreshed and ready for some action.

9. Conversion in Google Thats right folks if you wanna know how to convert millimeter to meter, cm to inches, 1 byte to bit, inches to feet, km to miles etc etc. You can do it all in google! How? All you got to do is use “in” word between any of course desired calculation eg. Type “20 cm in inches”, “5km in miles”, “200mm in meter” etc etc. And you will get your answer in seconds! You can even do currency conversion as well. Isnt it handy folks?

10. Learn when to COPY + PASTE When typing long text or coding if you are a developer its best if you know when do you need to just copy and paste existing text and just editing some part of it. Especially when you have an html code that nees to be repeated for a number of times. You dont need to be a computer wiz to know when to do it. Even you just browsing the internet for information most basic users know how to copy and paste just keep in mind the article you are copying , it might be a copyright materials.

I know these are very lame list because heck we all know how to do this already, but to me hey I struggle lol.
