Lumia Tips: Random

| February 18, 2012 | 16 Replies

We’ve had a couple of dedicated ‘Lumia Tip’ posts before (found Here & Here); today I’ll just go ahead and list some other useful tips/shortcuts that I’ve come across that hopefully will help you guys out as well.

  • Quick Unlock into camera/Search: You can unlock the phone without pressing the power button by keeping the Camera button pressed for 3 seconds, this will open up the camera interface for quick shooting; alternatively once you press the power button you can unlock the phone by pressing the ‘Search” capactive key which will open up Bing Search (provided Search Unlock is activated in setting)
  • Accessing Domain Shortcuts: While browsing get quick access to other domain shortcuts (.net/.edu/.Org) by pressing on the ‘.Com’ key for 2 seconds

  • Marking Multiple Emails: You can Mark Multiple emails by clicking once on the Left Side of the email subject (You’ll get little checkboxes similar to Symbian)

  • Quick Dial from recent calls: in Recent call log you can either view a contacts profile by clicking on his/her name and select which number you’d like to call; or you can click the circle with a phone inside (to the left of the contact name) to redial whichever number was registered in the log.

That’s about it for now; do you have any useful shortcuts? Let us know below.
