Commonly I look over the shoulders of my colleges and see them taking unnecessarily many steps to do simple things. One such is the task of finding out what date it is.
Everyone knows how to find the clock, it's located in either bottom or top right corner on most modern computers. Well what you maybe didn't know is that if you take your mouse pointer and move it over that clock, the date will pop up instantly (don't click the mouse, just move it there).
That's all folks!
