That’s Refreshing!

That Is Refreshing
Remember, Breaking the Mouse Barrier is about saving time by reaching for the keyboard instead of the mouse.

Scenario: You are surfing the Internet using either Internet Explorer or Firefox, perhaps you’re checking your webmail, or you’re looking at a page and an image did not load properly.  These are two situations where you would want to refresh the page.  What do you do?

  1. Reach for the mouse and precisely target the refresh icon?
  2. Or press a single key? Fast like a cobras strike!


If you want to break the mouse barrier, you will simply  press the F5 key.  You can’t miss it, it’s the top row of your keyboard between F4 and F6! It’s Fast and it’s Furious by a factor of 5 that’s why it’s called F5!

Surf on brothers and sisters.  And let me know if you need anything!
