CTRL-F & Your Business

Control F is one of the most useful ways to find something that you are searching for on a webpage, in a document, or even within some computer programs. However according to a Google Study, about 90% of computer users do not know the shortcut exists.

When you use the keyboard shortcut CTRL-F (or CMD-F for the Mac users), you are prompted with a dialogue search box to enter keywords you would like to search for. Once your keywords have been entered, the keywords will show up highlighted and you can skip from one to the other until you can find exactly what you were looking for.

For example, let's say you are on the backend of your Revel System, and you are looking for a specific setting. Without using the CTRL-F shortcut, you might be scrolling up and down looking for quite some time until you find the setting you were trying to locate. However pressing CTRL-F or CMD-F, and then typing for instance "Reservations," it would immediately locate wherever the word "Reservations" appeared on the screen.

So now you are part of that 10% that knows the shortcut exists. Share the knowledge with your friends, family and colleagues, and soon you all will be efficiency machines.
