Here's a cool tech tool we recommend for saving time on your computer - Keybreeze. Keybreeze is basically a way to create short cuts to access files, applications, and web sites.
With Keybreeze, hit the semicolon key to call up the program and just type in a few characters to get to your shortcut. You can open files, programs, and web sites, create notes and reminders, search your computer, and perform system tasks. If you find that you access certain things over and over again, this will save you time.
The application is open source so there is no cost for the license, but the developers ask for a donation (which is customary for open source applications).
