@Brightpool 

Thanks Brightpool for posting way do easier for folks using a mouse 

@andrewtoo 

Thanks Andrew for trying it out 

I rarely am on my PC always using touch phone or tablet so had no way to try out 

 

Anything anyway sure beats tapping the plus sign 

Thanks

Have a beautiful Sunday

I LOVE your sweepstakes shortcut.  I use a laptop with a mouse attached, so your method for entering sweepstakes is spot-on for me.

 

I just blew through the sweepstakes that I wanted to enter, sadly that is only 4 of them right now, but, saving time on a daily task is most welcome.  Of course, I already highlight the "1" in the box and type "49", but I just repeated in my mind "tab, tab, space, tab, enter" as I completed the sweepstakes today.

 

However, I'm sure that muscle memory will take over in a few days, so I won't have to think about it.

 

Thanks so much Robot Very Happy

I use a laptop computer to enter the sweepstakes.

 

The best way I know to streamline entering 49 more entries is to:

  1. Click and drag across the 1 in the box, which highlights it to make it ready to replace with new text.
  2. Type 49 in the box. I use my number keypad on the right.
  3. Press Tab twice to activate the checkbox (shows dotted line around the perimeter).
  4. Press the Space Bar to check the checkbox.
  5. Press Tab once more, and press Enter.

This looks like a lot in the list, but once you get the hang of the steps, it cuts the entry time to maybe 2 or 3 seconds for each Sweepstakes.

Hey Jane DITTO to that thought

 

I did by accident learn that I don't have to tap + sign anymore

I am usually on my phone so this works for me on phone and my tablet Try it out ! 

Since it automatically comes up with a 1 there I now click box in front of 1 type 49 it'll show 41 then I back space enter 9 makes it 49 for me this is easier than when I used sit and click it to 49 

Maybe this will work for you and be easier 

Have a beautiful evening

You know what would be wonderful?  If they had a button at the Sweepstakes where you could click ONE TIME and get 49 points!
