Filling Out a Form
It drives me nuts to watch people fill out a form without the Tab key. Place the cursor in the first box (field) to fill out and then use the Tab key to move to the next box (field) to fill out. If you need to go back to a previous box (field) in the form, use Shift Tab to go backwards!
If you encounter where you need to check a checkbox, use the SPACEBAR to select the option.
Google Drawing and Google Slides
If you’re wondering how I created the pictures of keyboard keys and the animated GIF’s the answer is Snagit! Snagit allows me to take screenshots, record my screen, easily (crazy easy) create animated GIF’s of my screencasts, and to use stamps to spiff up my snags. One of the stamp options is keyboard keys, I use that a lot! Snagit is not an annual subscription, but rather a one-time low cost of $30. I love it! Click here for educator pricing.
