What was the one thing you wish you had known when you first started online?

Work on our superfast broadband project is continuing across the Highlands and Islands and with places like the Outer Hebrides now connected, more people than ever are starting to realise the benefits of having a superfast broadband connection.

However, for people experiencing this wealth of opportunities for the first time, it’s hard to know where to start. After all, it’s all well and good that the majority of the region will be able to access superfast broadband but how do we help people make the most of it? Of course, there is plenty of help available out there in the form of programmes and events but sometimes, the best way to grasp a new skill is simply by learning from another.

That’s why we’re asking you: What was the one thing you wish you had known when you first started online?

For me, it’s using keyboard shortcuts so that I can complete tasks on the computer more efficiently, especially being able to quickly minimise all of my open programs and go straight to my desktop. See the video below for how to do it.
