In fact, one of the recent updates featured keyboard shortcuts that help employees save time and reduce hassle to become more productive throughout the workday.

Interested in taking advantage of these keyboard shortcuts? Here’s the top 5 shortcuts you’ve probably never heard of:

  1. Open/close tabs:

  1. Cycle between open tabs:

When you’ve got a bunch of tabs open within one window, it can easily become difficult to find the right one without wasting time. Here’s a great solution: press Control + Tab to switch to the next tab to the right or Shift + Control + Tab to switch to the left.

  1. Add to bookmarks/favorites:

If you’re on a website that you’d like to visit again in the future, feel free to add the website to your bookmarks and/or favorites. Simply press Command + D and you’ll notice the option to add to bookmarks/favorites pop up.

  1. Browse your history:
