To create a new folder in the folder you are currently browsing (in explorer):
This makes a big difference when building out directory structures in windows. It is much faster than right clicking, New, Folder.
Web developers have to refresh browser caches a lot (if we even have our browsers set to cache) — if you want a quick way to pull up the “Delete Browsing History” screen in IE8:
It’ll pop up, click “Temporary Internet Files” and then “Delete”. It will stop you from having to click into the menus up top.
Bonus – Force IE8 to “Always Refresh from Server”
If you’re in IE8 and are constantly refreshing the cache, why not temporarily force refreshed content:
Hit F12 (for the Developer Tools)
Click on menu item “Cache” and click on “Always Refresh from Server“
You can look back in there to see a checkbox next to it, so you know it’s on. It will let you always refresh from the server for just the current browser session (very useful).
