Netopia claims itself to be the largest and fastest growing internet cafe chain in the Philippines. It has 180 branches and more than 8,000 pc’s to service its customers.
Personally, I like renting computers in netopia, because of its high-speed internet connection. I mean, it’s not really that very high speed, but at least I can’t have any complaint with such a speed.
However, I am a person who likes to play around a computer very quickly. That is, I often use shortcuts instead of browsing through the menu options. I also have a great deal with using the right click button of my mouse.
In Netopia, some of these options are disabled. I don’t know maybe for security purposes. But the shortcuts or quickkeys that I often use, which are not applicable when you’re renting in Netopia (that’s why I find it inconvenient), are:
- Alt+Tab – toggle to the last window viewed.
- right-click to the taskbar – so I can easily and quickly close/maximize/minimize/restore windows
- Ctrl+Alt+Del – to access the task manager (to check for the status of any application whether it’s still responding or not, or maybe to immediately close the program that is not responding.)
