To select a portion of the text, click at the beginning of the desired location, and then go to where the selection ends and click again, while pressing the Shift key.


2. Go back-forward in the browser
To go to the previous (or next) page in the browser, you can not click on the buttons on the top toolbar, and hold down the Shift key and scroll the mouse wheel forward or backward. (Works in FireFox, Chrome must install the Chrome Toolbox plugin or Chrome plus)


3. Zoom in and out
