When entering information into a series of fields or text boxes most everyone knows that you can use the Tab key to move forward from field to field (or box to box) to enter information. But you can also move backward when necessary by holding down the Shift key along with the Tab key.
Think about how many time you have been sending an email and decided to add (or remove) a person in the recipient list. With this trick you don’t have to stop and use the mouse to get back to the field you want.
This works on the internet, Mail, and my personal favorite, FileMaker Pro. Try it on any application on your Mac that involves fields or text boxes.
