F11 Get The Most Out Of Your Screen Size

The F11 is at the top of the keyboard along with the other F keys, F1-F12. They have many uses. The F11 key though is great for seeing the whole picture or at least a lot more of it. The F11 key is quick and easy to use. Basically F11 is a quick way to get to the full screen option. Depending on the size of your screen along with using the Ctrl Scroll trick(the previous post to this one) you should be somewhat happy with the results.
To get rid of the full screen simply hit the F11 key again and there ya go.

Windows Task Manager

One of the most important combination of keys is the Ctrl-Alt-Delete. When a program is not working properly or your computer is not responding. In this order, you hold down Ctrl first then while still holding that down you press the Alt key followed by the Delete key. If done correctly a window will pop up saying Windows Task Manager. This will let you know if a program is still running or not in the Application drop down tab. Manually you can end a program that may be slowing or freezing your computer. You can also manually shut down your computer avoiding holding down the power button.
There are many options in the Task Manager like Application,Processes, the Performance of your computer, Networking and Users.

Zooming Into The Internet Trick

This has to be one of my favorite computer keyboard tricks out there, it works well for all those pictures you can't click on to enlarge or for that tiny text that you can never read. It is a really simple trick that most people don't know about.

Simply hold down the CTRL key which is normally on the bottom left and right corners of your keyboard. While holding the CTRL key use the middle scroll back on your mouse to zoom in and out of any internet page! Super handy and really cool...
