The keyboard and mouse are already so familiar things in our lives that it seems there's just we can not trap any surprises. Nevertheless, it happens that all typical products are not entirely obvious properties and functions. Today we want to introduce you, and some just to recall a few hidden ways to use a computer mouse.

1 Isolation of the text
We all know that in order to highlight the text you must hold down the left mouse button and hold the cursor on the desired portion of text. However, if we need to highlight the text on the page length, that is scrollable, it is not always convenient. Therefore, use the following combination: click at the beginning of the desired location, then go to the end of the desired selection and click again, but holding the clamped Shift. All the space between the two clicks are highlighted.
2 transitions back and forth in the browser
In the browser to go to the previous or next page do not necessarily clicking on the appropriate button on the toolbar.You can simply hold down the Shift key and rotate the mouse wheel forward or back.
3 Zoom in and out
You can change the display scale of the open page just turning the scroll at the same time while holding the button on the keyboard CTRL. This method works in a large number of programs, including many image viewer.
4 Double-and triple-click
Everyone knows that in order to highlight the word you just need to double click on it to quickly arm. But if you do a triple-click, you can select from a paragraph of text. Try it, it is much more convenient than pulling the cursor selection to end of paragraph.
5 Drag and drop, right-click
To move files in Windows, we use the method of drag'n'drop, that is, we take an element, drag it to the desired location, and there throw. But you can do the same thing, right click and then we will see a context menu that allows you to not only move, but also to copy the file and create a shortcut in the right place.
6: Selecting multiple images into text
If you work with long texts in which you need to cut only you are interested in fragments, it is not necessary to do this piece. You can hold down the CTRL key and highlight the right words, sentences, paragraphs. Then copy it all in one fell swoop to the right place.
7 Open links in a new tab
Many users have already used that to open this link in a new tab, you can press the middle mouse button. However, if the wheel broke and do not click, it is useful to remember that a normal mouse while holding down the CTRL key leads to the same result.
