How long have I been using PC’s??? Not long enough as I discovered a nifty shortcut today that I have never used before with my Microsoft® Trackball Optical Mouse.
I’d like to know who else uses this mouse (though I am sure any mouse with a scroll wheel will also accomplish this shortcut), and knew of the trick.
If you hover over a live link (in my case it was a picture with a link), you can click using the scroll wheel of the mouse and it will launch the target into a new tab (I use FF3).
How cool is that!! It is perfect for my website timsdigitasldarkroom.com, as I was previously having to open pictures on at a time since there is a no right click on my gallery pages. Now I can just scroll click and go!
