    I hate it when...

    I press ctrl+alt+spacebar while I'm looking at an image online so I can see it bigger... *laugh* Do you guys do any silly things with Photoshop shortcuts in completely inappropriate places?

    That is so funny Heather. I don't use Photoshop shortcuts, so that isn't my problem, but I do try to do Ctrl + to make the contents of my browser window bigger - it's a Chrome thing, but I try it in IE all the time!

    Too funny, Heather! I have my scrollbutton resize for me, but I've definitely tried to resize other things the same way!
    Um, lots of control-z in inappropriate places (and thankfully DH is a computer geek too, so I can say "can I just control-Z that?" and he knows what I'm saying, though he laughs at me for my geekiness
    I'm not sure what else...

    I do the scroll thing, too. What's worse, though, is that I'm so attached to my iPhone feature where you can pinch to make things bigger or smaller, that I catch myself pinching my magazines to zoom in!

    I don't know anything about this control, alt, space bar thing...must be a PC deal. I catch myself holding down the space bar to get the little Photoshop "hand" tool to maneuver around the screen...but I'm on the internet, then realize that ain't happnin'!

    It's a Photoshop deal, not a PC deal, Donna... give it a try! You press ctrl+alt+spacebar, and either click on the thing you want larger, or click-drag a square around the area you want to focus in on...

    I don't have an alt key. I'm on a Mac.
    Never mind....just found it. I use Command plus and minus.
    There are so many ways to do things!

    Option. Alt=Option for me. But, I think the Control and Option Keys are switched. Yada yada yada

    The one I've caught myself doing the most is ctrl+G when I'm organizing files in WinExplorer. I sure wish it would work to group things together like it does in PS; it would be much more convenient that way!
