Knowing where you are on the wonderful worldwideweb

An easy way to navigate through messages in Outlook

Recently, I was going through my email, when I discovered that there is a much easier way to quickly navigate between messages rather than pressing escape to exit your current message and using arrow keys to move up and down through the list.

That much easier way is to simply press control+, to move back through messages and control+. to move forward.

I’ve been using these commands daily for about a month now and they’re definitely a huge timesaver!

An easy way to change the volume of running apps

Have you ever ben listening to music or a podcast, while you work on your computer using either JAWS or NVDA & wished you could change the volume quickly?

Well now, you can, thanks to this handy tip I saw on Mastodon last night, which comes from

He wrote, “

“I just found a cool command in windows 11.
Control+windows+V will bring up a quick settings screen, in which you can change volumes for running apps!
Kind of like running the old-style mixer, but with a modern twist.”

I tested this command myself, shortly after seeing it, and it works brilliantly.

How do I send a tab from one device to another?

Recently, I was working in my web browser on my computer & needed to leave to go somewhere.

But, I didn’t want to lose what I was looking at.

So, I sent the tab from my computer to my iPhone.

To perform the following steps, you’ll need Edge installed on all the devices you plan to use. It even works on Linux!

To send a tab to another device:

1. Press either alt+d or control+L to bring focus to the address bar.

2. Tab once. If your screen-reader says something about previous searches, remove them all, by tabbing then pressing enter until they’re all gone. (THE “send page” option & toolbar in general, won’t show up, until you do.)

3. Find the “send page” option & click it.

4. Choose the device you’d like to send the page to & there you go!

Screen-reader Productivity Tip

The following is for those of you who use a Screen-reader with a Lenovo Yoga laptop.

I was under the impression that changing the volume quickly was not possible, boy, was I wrong!

After tinkering around with various keyboard shortcuts, I discovered that there is in fact a quick and easy way to do this.

To adjust the volume of your screen-reader’s speech, press f2 to decrease and f3 to increase.

Depending on if your function keys are enabled, you may need to add the function key, which on my particular model, is located just to the right of the control key.

There you have it, a quick and easy way to adjust your volume on the fly! If you have any questions or need assistance with this process, sound off in the comments & I’d be more than happy to assist you.
