The Greatest Keyboard Shortcut Ever

timothy posted 1 year,23 days | from the wish-I'd-known-this-15-years-ago dept.

The Internet 506

Hugh Pickens DOT Com writes "Ryan Vogt writes in the Mercury News that Shakespeare described death as 'the undiscovere'd country, from whose bourn no traveller returns.' Did you know there is a the miraculous way to resuscitate tabs sent to the 'undiscovere'd country,' a sort of Ctrl-Z for the entire Internet, that means 'no more called-out cusswords, no more wishing the back button had you covered when, aiming to click on a tab, you accidentally hit the little X on the tab's starboard.' For Macs: Command [plus] shift [plus] t reopens the last tab. For PCs: Ctrl [plus] Shift [plus] T. 'Try it right now. Close this tab and bring it back. I dare ya.' Melia Robinson's trick [described for Chrome] works in Firefox and Internet Explorer, too, so clumsy mousing won't send the the E*Trade tab you mistakenly closed all cued up to sell those 10,000 shares of stock or your long political post on your uncle's Facebook page on a one-way trip to the undiscovere'd country in those browsers, either." No guarantees on the stock trading.

Huh? What? (5, Interesting)

The summary should read "Several browsers let you press Ctrl-Shift-T to reopen a closed tab. That is all."

Why this is deserving of an article I don't know.

It's not. I've been doing that with Chrome since it first came out.

Re:Huh? What? (1)

The MAZZTer (911996) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673659)

I assumed it was making fun of people who didn't already know this?

Chrome puts closed tabs in the main menu so anyone who doesn't know the shortcut can find them easily, as well. I dunno what other browsers do but there's certainly an add-on for Firefox that can do it somewhere.

Re:Huh? What? (4, Funny)

Aaron B Lingwood (1288412) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673473)

Thirded. No clue what this is actually about.

I think this is a story about a guy who logs into some banking/trading platform only to leave it idle and proceed to random web browsing in other tabs of the same browser instance.

I'm sure the story doesn't end well.

Re:Huh? What? (1)

ifiwereasculptor (1870574) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673461)

Well, it's both very badly written and seems to exist for the sole purpose of informing about a browser feature that is already very well-known and can be accessed via the always intuitive context menu, which will also provide the shortcut information. So I'm going to go with B, even though I feel a fellow /.ter will prove me wrong by linking to an even more stupid story.

Re:Huh? What? (3, Funny)

Re:Huh? What? (1)

Old Wolf (56093) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673437)

I knew about it in Chrome but hadn't been able to find a similar option in Firefox. (Going to the Firefox history and reopening the last closed page there, loses anything you'd typed into forms)

Re:Huh? What? (1)

greenreaper (205818) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673529)

You can also right-click on the tab bar, it's an option there.

Re:Huh? What? (1)

jrumney (197329) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673583)

The keyboard shortcut is spelt out in full right there in the "Recently Closed Tabs" submenu, inside the History menu you're looking at, and you needed some random blogger getting a front page article on Slashdot to find it for you?

Re:Huh? What? (5, Funny)

vidnet (580068) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673523)

Somehow it claims it's "a sort of Ctrl-Z for the entire Internet".

Come back when it lets me undo posting Slashdot comments with mipselled words.

They're talking about Firefox, but astonishingly, don't mention that in the summary. At least, I tried it with Firefox and it works. Maybe it works in other browsers, too, but I'm too lazy to experiment. It is a useful shortcut that I didn't know about.

Re:Huh? What? (1)

BitterOak (537666) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673411)

Ooops. My bad. Reading the summary more carefully, they do mention it works in Firefox, Explorer and Chrome.

It's just the "recently closed tabs" feature that has been in Firefox since the dawn of time.

TFA falls into the No-Shit-Sherlock/TYVM-Captain-Obvious category.

Re:Huh? What? (1)

EvanED (569694) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673559)

It's just the "recently closed tabs" feature that has been in Firefox since the dawn of time.

To be fair, it's not been around for quite that long. My guess/investigation was that the feature was added to Firefox 2; for a while, I used an extension that provided that functionality. Even if you count from Firefox's 1.0 release, that would be a quarter of the way through it's life (in human terms, it'd have learned that feature while in college), and FF was gaining traction among well before then.

That being said... why the heck is this a /. story?

Re:Huh? What? (1)

asmkm22 (1902712) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673449)

This is one of the worst summaries ever. The topic is bad. The summary is bad. It's confusingly written, without any clear idea as to what point it's trying to convey.

TLDR: CTRL+Shift+T restores tabs you accidentally closed.

Re:Huh? What? (1)

hairyfeet (841228) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673455)

I think they are talking about using a fucking up 3 finger keyboard shortcut to do what any Gecko or Chromium based browser does with a right click. Why on earth you'd want to go through a 3 finger keyboard shortcut when its just right click>reopen closed tab and unlike the 3 finger bullshit you can undo as many levels as you want, all the way back to when you opened the browser.

I'll probably get hate for saying this but "keyboard commanders" seem to think its some great accomplishment when they trip over some funky fucked up keyboard shortcut and when they point it out a good 90% of the time I have to reply with "Uhhh...you know there is a button that will do that, right? See just click here, no need to twist your fingers into pretzels when there is a GUI button right there" but then they get all pissy, like we should all be amazed at the fact they can twist their fingers into pretzels to do what the rest of us can do with a single click of the mouse in the right place.;

Re:Huh? What? (1)

pjbgravely (751384) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673537)

Right click, then click?

At least in firefox for I, it is a single middle click in the tabs bar to reopen the last closed tab.

Re:Huh? What? (1)

Anonymous Coward | 1 year,23 days | (#44673685)

Um...just because I know some keyboard shortcuts doesn't mean I just learned them to impress people. I learned them because it's faster and because moving back and forth between keyboard and mouse is annoying. You come across as an input device equivalent to one of those people who gets mad at others for using big words.

There is - in fact I never use the keyboard shortcut: History menu, Recently Closed Tabs, choose the one you want back from the submenu. Of course you actually have to make the menu bar visible to find it, but doesn't everyone do that anyway?

I have always simply right clicked on the toolbar and select"open closed tab". The shortcut has always been there to see, I could not bother to memorise it.

Re:Daaaa Whaaaat ? (2)

VortexCortex (1117377) | 1 year,23 days | (#44673585)

Do this: Click the "Reply to This" link below the post. Then type something, then close the tab. Now restore the tab. Note that the text you typed is gone (at least on Chromium and Firefox, can't bring myself to care about other browsers off the clock). The TFA acts as if this will save you some headache, and perhaps it does if the form fields were not dynamically generated via DOM manipulation... Otherwise you lose your shit. Especially if you use Dvorak, where the Ctrl+V is dangerously close to Ctrl+W (which closes the current window / tab). Sadly the plugin that allows you to remap / disable Ctrl+W no longer works in Firefox. I could make a new one to re-add the feature, but it's no big deal to remove it when merging the other changes prior to browser compilation.

Do this instead: Middle Click the "reply to this" link, or right click it and select: "open in new tab". Now Navigate to that tab (Ctrl+Tab for toggling tabs like Alt+Tab does for applications). Now enter some text in the box, then close that tab (Ctrl+W). Re-open it (Ctrl+Shift+Tab).... Aha! There's your content, still typed in the box, and even survives restoring from crashes in most cases.

The only downside is, you can post text without being forced to preview it... Which I'm doing right now because I still like to live a bit dangerously.

If you close a tab that you didn't mean to close, just hit Command-z and the tab will reopen. It was the last thing you did, so it makes sense that Command-z would undo that. This isn't exactly rocket science.

Person Discovers Menu Bar: Writes Article (0)

Anonymous Coward | 1 year,23 days | (#44673447)

Yes, and (in Firefox, at least) you can re-open closed windows by using ctrl+shift+N. And you can reset page zoom with ctrl+0. Or open the Downloads window by pressing ctrl+J. Or F11 to full screen. Or press Alt to go through the menu bar if you don't have it and see all these wonderful functions your program has but you were too ignorant to know about.

Is this really a "News for Nerds" article? Shouldn't you already know this? What's next, an article that informs us that ctrl+Y is a "redo" button if you've undone too much?

First, this is not something new. It has existed for some time and I've been using it for quite a while. Second, what the hell is this doing on the front page of /. ??

If we got articles like this every time some very slow mind discovered some very basic functionality in some very basic software, ./ would be a very sad place indeed. Too bad this was posted.
