The N900 – Tips and Tricks Series Level 02

7 March 2010Entry by

As the headline already tells you, this is a continued blog about Tips and Tricks on the N900. As in some comments in the last post was mentioned, that most of you already know many of these hints, and others are also findable in the manual, the meaning of this information gathering is just to have all interesting material in one place shareable. I’d also like to get Tips and Tricks from you, so I can add these to our collection.


So here are the next ones:

Selecting text: hold the shift key and use the arrow keys

Selecting text with stylus: double tap for a word, or triple tap for all words (this is like the mouse double-click you are used from the pc)

Shortcuts used in web-browser:

. Ctrl + N: opens a new window

. Ctrl + R: reloads the current page

. Ctrl + B: opens a bookmark

. Ctrl + D: adds a bookmark

Shortcuts used in Email:

. Ctrl + Enter: send message

. Ctrl + R: reply to message

Taking a screenshot:

. Ctrl + Shift + P: captures current screen and saves it to the images folder (this one is for tricky fingers ;) ).


Have you also known, that taping with one thumb on one side of the touch-screen and alternately with your other thumb on the other side of the screen while releasing the former finger almost at the same time, lets you swap your desktops in a horrendous speed. It needs a little bit practice, but if you got the hang of it, it is really a cool thing.

So this is it as much for today. To be continued …
