Pro tip: Using 100% of your tab button

Recognize that? It’s the infamous tab button on your keyboard. You’ve probably used it for two things: indenting paragraphs and filling out forms without using the mouse. Today, we’ll focus on the filling-out-the-forms part.

Ever wonder why your TAB button has two arrows, one going backwards and one going forwards? It has a double function. If you’ve only used it to go to the next field or text box in a form, you’re missing out on 50% of its functionality.

The other 50% is it’s ability to go backwards through text boxes and fields. How do we harness this awesome power?

Shift + TAB

Give it a try next time you’re filling out a giant, ugly form. After you start using it, you’ll never stop.
