I'm probably not the only one that's annoyed at the extreemly minor inconvience of having to take my hands off my keyboard to select the little bold button to bold some words in a text. Or to push the button for italics or underline.

Just now I stumbled upon the merry discover that holding down the ALT key and pushing B pops up the little window to input your words in bold. SO COOL! It looks like the same applies for italics and underline, too!

Bold Alt and B pressed at the same time
UnderlineAlt and U pressed at the same time
Italics Alt and I pressed at the same time

Weirdly, it pops up one window to type in, and then another. But, that's not much of a problem as I can just TAB over to the cancel button on the second window. I'm just so pleased I can keep my hands on my keyboard when typing! (My daughter is usually asleep in my lap when I'm on permies, and I'm typing over her, so if I move my arms too much, she wakes up. Sometimes I can't type at all because she's too restless, but that's another problem that even permies can't solve, LOL!)

Destroy anything that stands in your way. Except this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
