Issue #104  (The Brains of Resilient People) 02/08/21

This Super User thread mentions a new keyboard shortcut I didn't even know existed: If you press CTL-ALT-TAB on a Windows machine, the little window that appears that gives you the option to switch between currently open applications  (normally triggered with ALT-TAB) stays in place until you click an option. Pretty neat!

ALT-TAB Alternative

I use ALT-TAB all the time, but didn't know about that one. The thread also includes a number of other keyboard shortcuts and tidbits that you might find useful.

Now on to this week's hand-picked productivity links!
