#UX Tip about Controls that Support Exploration. A linear slider is useful when the parameter has a defined range, but a precise value is less likely to be important to users. Sliders are effective when users can scrub through the range of the control and see the effects in real time (delay of no more than 0.1 seconds).

#UX Tip about Keyboard Shortcuts!
- Use a shortcut with the CTRL key for "large-scale" actions (like CTRL+S for save).
- Avoid ALT+ letter combinations that may conflict keys that are being used to access menu items (when not using a mouse).
- Use SHIFT + [key combination] to extend the action of [key combination] (like SHIFT+ALT+TAB to navigate backward through currently running applications).
- Use the ENTER key for the default action of a dialog box.
- Use the ESC key to stop or cancel an operation.
Click the link and get more ideas on how to select the shortcut keys wisely.

#UX Tip! The digital proficiency of users is worse than you'd expect. Only 5% of the adult users can complete a "Level 4" task – e.g. scheduling a meeting with several attendees.

#UX Tip! Fitts’ Law states that the bigger an object is and the closer it is to us, the easier it will be for us to reach it. Seems obvious, isn’t it? So how come we still need to cope with jumpy menus in some websites? Apparently, applying Fitts' law is not always simple, and no - a bigger button is not always a more usable button.

#UX Tip: Cards are a useful UI component for grouping several related pieces of information together for providing an entry point to further details. Cards work especially well in contexts where they provide summaries of many different kinds of content.

#UX tip: The golden rule of dashboards' UX is to avoid them and provide your users timely notifications about abnormalities, mishaps, and valuable insights. In some contexts, though, dashboards cannot be avoided, so here are your rules of thumb to do it right.
