Tip of the day...
Work faster with keyboard shortcuts
Wikipedia has keystroke combinations that can speed up your work, like
+ ⇧ Shift Alt+ F to "focus" on (jump to) the search box, + ⇧ Shift Alt+ M to move the current page and its talk page, + ⇧ Shift Alt+ T to open the current article's talk page, + ⇧ Shift Alt+ Y to open a list of your user's contributions, and many more. Those are for Windows users. On the Mac OS, press Control instead of + ⇧ Shift Alt.
