    Undocumented shortcut key!?

    Advertisement



    Hello fellow pinstackers! While browsing the stacks tonight I found a shortcut key for clicking links. While on a link if you click and hold the scroll wheel for a quick second and then let go it will follow the link your on. Not sure if this is known or not, but I figured I would share. It's really great now I don't have to click the wheel twice

    Short click of the trackwheel will open the menu, Click and hold will activate the item. I had problems with my 7290 when I first got it, never could open the menu in the browser if I was on a link. Finally figured out just how quick I had to press to get it right.

    It's funny how, when your new to a device and you find something out by experience, you think that everyone but you knew about it. I never thought about this before.

    Thanks for bringing this up, rip.

    Glad I could help
    Berry_bum: my only problem with hitting the enter key is I'm usually using the BB one handed, so shifting the BB in my hand is a pain if doing so all the time
    Thanks for the info

    For those of you using the 7100 series, you can turn of your backlight with a short press of the power key. Remember though, if you use Berry Light, the light may come right back on depending on your settings.

    I usually hit the enter key on links, but because I didn't like the double click of the wheel. Thus shortcut helps, thanks.
