Whether it’s a shortcut, tutorial, tip or trick – since February 2022, we’ve been providing you with all kinds of life hacks from the IT sector every three weeks via our social media channels Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #ITbites.

Don’t have one of the two social media accounts? No problem! Today we’re recapping the #ITbites from Q2 2022 for you here on the blog so you don’t miss a thing. You missed the lifehacks from the 1st quarter? Then feel free to check out our last post 😊

No. 2: Print document

You need to print a document or a web page quickly? With the following shortcut it’s no problem anymore.
Unless there is not enough paper. Or the color magenta is empty. Or the printer has to communicate with the home planet.

    Ich benutze häufig: “define:” (z.B. define:WYSIWYG, define:SNMP) konzentriert die Suche auf Beschreibungen des Suchbegriffs. Kann bei Akronymen schon mal hilfreich sein.
