How to Move Quickly Between Fields

One of the cool things about the Internet is that you can fill out forms quickly and easily, without printing out pages unless you want to, and definitely without spending money on postage.

It's possible to navigate through an online form even faster with this simple trick!

When you need to fill out a form, click your mouse in the first field. Say it's the field where you type in your first name. Great! When it's time to go to the next field, you can save time by NOT moving your cursor with your mouse -- you can just tap the Tab key, and it will move your cursor to the next box automatically.

If you watch carefully when you hit Tab, you'll see each box highlighted and see where your cursor travels.

If you hit Tab too quickly and move past the box you're supposed to fill, don't worry! There's an easy way to back-track: Hold down the Shift key, and then tap Tab, and you'll go back to the previous field. Simple as that!
