Four really useful mouse tricks

Almost all computer users know that when they click on a link or button, it opens the thing that it points to.

But did you know that you can do a lot more with your mouse than just click on links and start programs?

But the truth is that the mouse is one of the most useful parts of your computer.

Need proof? Take a look at these four very useful mouse tricks:

1. To choose a word, double-click on it. It’s much faster to do this than to click on the first letter of a word and then drag the mouse to the end of that word.

2. Triple-click on a word to pick the whole phrase that it’s in right away. It is much faster to do this than to click on the first letter of the paragraph, hold down the Shift key, and then click on the last letter of the paragraph.

3. Press down on the mouse wheel and click it to open a link in a new window or tab. It is easier and faster to do this if you hold down the Ctrl key and click the link.

4. To change the text size and zoom in or out, hold down the Ctrl key and roll the mouse wheel. To change the zoom level and text size back to how they were before, hold down the Ctrl key and press the 0 key (not the letter O).

That’s it! You now know some pretty cool things you can do with your mouse. I hope they were helpful!
