Search for a Needle in a Tabstack

Do not ever let anyone shame you for having dozens and dozens of open tabs, implying you don’t have it together and can’t find the right one. Instead, dazzle them with this trick.

This will prevent you from creating a duplicate tab, not that anyone has ever done that.

“Rural areas do not receive the same quality and level of broadband services typically received by urban areas in Nebraska,” said Dr. Tim Obermier, UNK professor of Industrial Technology. Access to high-speed broadband in a rural area is challenging. Because of this limited accessibility of quality, and speed of internet services, rural areas are experiencing difficulties attracting and retaining new talent and fostering entrepreneurship.

You can customize Outlook's spam filter to block or whitelist senders and domains. I strongly recommend to regularly review messages in the Junk Email folder to check for legitimate messages that were incorrectly classified as junk. If you find a message that isn’t junk, drag...
