Fixing common browser annoyances

Explore Monday Productivity Pointers at lynda.com.


We use web browsers for just about everything today. You’re even using one right now to read this blog post. So we get frustrated when they don’t behave as expected. This week’s Monday Productivity Pointers shows you how to solve some of the most common web browser annoyances you may encounter.

I’m not talking about error messages or critical, show-stopping bugs, but some common problems that pop up when using web browsers frequently. For example, at some point in your web-browsing experience you may have typed the wrong user name into a website’s login form—and now every time you return to that site, there are two user names in the dropdown list: the correct user name and the mistake you wish would just disappear. In the first video this week, I’ll show you how to remove those mistakenly saved auto-fill entries or passwords that your web browser is holding on to.


In the second (members-only) video, I’ll show you how to get rid of unwanted toolbars that take up your valuable screen real estate, restore any browser tabs that you may have accidentally closed, and resize new browser windows that may be opening up at odd, inconvenient sizes. Watch this week’s videos to take charge of your web-browsing experience, and be sure to check back next week for more Monday Productivity Pointers to help make your digital life easier.
