Abstract (up to 100 words)

Many users do not know about some convenient tools or do not fully know their capabilities, and therefore often spend a lot of time on what can be done in seconds. In particular, the presentation will be about:

  1. Skills of using Microsoft Excel that are "must have" when creating tables or lists of articles (such as alphabetical sorting of values, filtering values by a certain criteria, searching for common items in two lists).
  2. Skills for using a text editor, mostly the Notepad++ (for example, sorting lines by alphabet, autoreplace and searching, including using the simplest regular expressions).
  3. How to assign keyboard shortcuts for frequently repeated actions (for example, keyboard shortcuts for writing [[]], [[]], long hyphen; to open a specific page, for example, opening a page with a key combination; to correct the text written in incorrect keyboard layout (very useful for people, whose native language is with script other than latin), etc.).
  4. Handy but not widely known keyboard shortcuts in browsers, text editors and the Windows operating system.
  5. Some lifehacks when using Google search.
  6. etc
How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?
