Check out this month’s technology tips and tricks

Chrome Tab Groups

If you tend to keep a lot of tabs open in your Chrome browser, you know the challenges of working with many websites at once: your tab bar is cluttered and it’s often hard to find a page you know is open — somewhere — in your browser.  Now, with a simple right-click, you can group your tabs together and label them with a custom name and color. To create a new tab group:

  1. Right-click an open tab
  2. Select Add tab to new group
  3. Name the group and choose a group color

Zoom Push-to-Talk

Are you tired of fumbling around to unmute yourself during Zoom meetings?  If so, the Zoom push-to-talk feature should help alleviate some of the hassle.  The feature allows the user to remain muted throughout a Zoom meeting and instead of grabbing for your mouse to unmute yourself, just hold down the spacebar when you want to be unmuted and talk.  

In order to take advantage of this feature, however, you will need to make sure you have it turned on in your settings:

  1. Within the Zoom desktop app, select your profile picture, then choose Settings 
  2. Select the Audio tab
  3. Check the option Press and hold SPACE key to temporarily unmute yourself
