Technology Basics: Bookmark

Technology Basics: Bookmark

The Internet contains countless articles and bits of information that you can absorb on a daily basis. More likely than not, you have a couple of go-to websites that contain information you find more valuable than the rest, and that’s perfectly normal for a busy business owner. However, you can save valuable time by creating bookmarks to help you more readily access the information found on the Internet.

What Are Bookmarks?
Regular bookmarks can be used to mark where you left off while reading a book. Digital bookmarks work in largely the same way, marking a web page so you can revisit it at any time you wish. To create a bookmark for a web page you’re currently viewing, use the Ctrl+D keyboard shortcut. Of course, the browser you’re using will vary this method slightly, but there is generally always a button somewhere in the taskbar you can click on to make a bookmark of a page. For example, in Google Chrome this button takes the form of a star icon in the right-hand corner of the address bar.

An important topic to note is that bookmarks aren’t always called “bookmarks.” They could be called something as simple as Favorites, which is arguably more effective given what bookmarks actually do. You can view your list of bookmarks or favorites easily enough by clicking on the menu of your chosen web browser and selecting Bookmarks (in Chrome, it’s the three-dot menu in the top-right corner of the web browser).

Why Use Bookmarks?
Bookmarks are incredibly useful, as they can save you countless hours of the workday that would ordinarily be spent navigating the Internet, trying to find pages that you need to be productive. This can cut down time wasted typing addresses into the search bar, as well as time wasted by going to websites accidentally due to a typo or mistake.

The time you save by using bookmarks can add up, and you might be shocked to find out how much easier your workday can be thanks to them. Remember, any technology that can make your job easier is worth investing in. After all, that’s why it was created in the first place, so why not take advantage of it?

Now, if you like what you see here, why not go ahead and make Decatur Computers Inc.’s blog one of your bookmarks?
