Here’s a short post giving you advice on how to use internet and your computer in the wisest and greenest ways !
- If you spend hours working on your computer -mainly reading and writing (hello students) you can save energy and your eyes by clicking the magical Control+Option+Command and with you other hand the key “8” (on a MAC) You will be surprised by what happens! (the control keys you need to press are the 3 in the lower left corner). To do it on a PC, take your afternoon off and wish for luck. See for yourself: here, unless someone knows a simpler tip? Please share the info!
- In order to save ink and paper, when you wish to print a page off the internet, first go on Print What You Like. You will be able to select only the text, and remove all the adds and banners that you usually end up printing from a web page. All you need to do is copy and paste the link of your webpage.
- And finally, if you’ve run out of things to write or print, make sure you use the right search engine. Darkoogle helps you save energy because it’s all dark 🙂
