I have been clicking on each enter button but I think I read of another method a while ago but I can't find that info.

I think you are right.  I would also like to see that faster method.

I guess you may be referring to "pre-loading" the sweeps entry pages. You hold down the control button as you click to enter each sweep on your Lucky List. My computer allows me to do this for about a dozen sweeps before it slows down too much to be beneficial. You save time by having the next entry page waiting for you instead of waiting for it to load each time. Hope this helps!

Yes, that's what I've been doing but I think there was a way of selecting a bunch without having to click on each one by one.

I believe the faster method you are talking about is called tab browsing. I use it everyday and it will cut your time in half. Hold down ther control key and click on the green enter button. It will open a new tab at the top for each sweep you click on. Depending on your computer, you can open 20 to 30 tabs at one time and just breeze through them.

Can you even imagine the cost of your salvation? The magnificent plan of the Father & the willing cooperation of the Son, proved your tremendous value in God's eyes. From His perspective, you are worth all the pain & suffering that was necessary to secure your eternal presence with Him in Heaven.

Sorry about that. I guess we were posting at the same time and you just beat me to it.

Held down control key and did as suggested.  Entered those sweeps.  Next question:  how do I get those off and go on to next set?  Please make it very clear because I can be dense.

Marli, at the top where they are listed, the tab for the sweep you are on has an X on it. Click on the X and it will close that tab. Tab browsing, like anything new, takes a little while to get use to using it, but it will save you time. Hopes this helps.

I use this all the time, If you forget where you ended you can always hit your lucky list to refresh and it will reload with the buttons being a different color.  Or just enter up to a certain date, finish those and continue from there....Hope this helps

Thanks everyone.  I am busy learning how to do this.  Think I have it.  If not, I will be back for guidance.


Update:  It took me a few times, but I am zipping thru sweeps even faster.  Thanks for everyone's assistance.

Now I feel dumb.  For the last couple years. I've clicked one sweep, then quickly flip back to the sweeps list page, click the next one, then flip back, the next one, etc.  Until I have 10 open.


Thank you for teaching me how to use round wheels instead of these square ones.
