This is a new one on me.
Suppose you want to enter an address like www.evernote.com into the URL bar in Firefox. Here’s the fast way. Type evernote and press Ctrl+Enter.
Using Ctrl+Enter tells Firefox to add the ‘ http://www.’ to the start of the URL and to add the ‘ .com/’ to the end of it.
Ctrl+Shift+Enter will do the same for .org addresses, and Shift+Enter does the same for .net addresses.
The default file browser in Ubuntu is Nautilus.
Any file or folder that has a full stop (‘period’ to our trans-Atlantic cousins) as the first character of its name is considered to be a hidden or system file or folder and they do not show up in Nautilus.
To make hidden files and folders appear in Nautilus, type Ctrl+H
To make Nautilus ignore them again, type Ctrl+H once more.
