You can block emails on iCloud using an inbox "Rule." When you block an email address on iCloud, any email you receive from that address will be automatically moved to your Trash folder. To block emails, you'll need to use the iCloud website — you can't use the Mail app on your iPhone or iPad. Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. If your iCloud inbox is being spammed with messages from a particular sender, you can block all messages from that email address. This can come in handy for dealing with a newsletter you can't seem to unsubscribe from, for example.  The only downside: You can't set up email blocks in the Mail app on your iPhone or iPad; you need to do it in a web browser on your Mac or PC.  Check out the products mentioned in this article: Apple Macbook Pro (From $1,299.00 at Apple) Acer Chromebook 15 (From $179.99 at Walmart) How to block emails on iCloud 1 Open iCloud's website in a browser and log in with your Apple ID. 2. Click "Mail." 3. At the bottom left of the Mail screen, click the Settings icon, which is shaped like a gear, and then click "Rules…" from the pop-up menu.  4. In the Rules tab, click "Add a Rule…" 5. In the "If a message" section at the top of the dialog box, choose "is from" and then enter the email address you want to block.  6. In the "Then" section at the bottom of the dialog box, choose "Move to Trash" and click "Done." 7. Click "Done" at the bottom of the Settings dialog box. Now any new emails from that email address will automatically go to the trash, so you won't need to see them in the inbox again.

You can take a screenshot on the Galaxy Note 10 in four main ways. The easiest way to take a screenshot on a Note 10 is to quickly press the Volume Down and Power buttons at the same time. You can also take a screenshot on the Note 10 by swiping your palm across the screen, using the S Pen, or using a Bixby voice command. Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. Samsung gives you no fewer than four ways to take a screenshot on a Galaxy Note 10. You can learn them all and use them interchangeably, or just stick with a single method — it's up to you. You can take screenshots using the buttons on the side of the phone, with a hand gesture, using Bixby, or by using the Note 10's S Pen. Here's how to do all of them. Check out the products mentioned in this article: Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (From $949.99 at Samsung) How to take a screenshot on the Note 10 using the side buttons Most of the time, the easiest way to take a screenshot is by using the power and volume buttons.  1. Go to the screen you want to screenshot. 2. Briefly press the Volume Down and Power buttons simultaneously. Release the buttons quickly — if you hold them too long, the Note 10 will display options to shut down. 3. You'll see the screen flash slightly and the screenshot toolstrip will appear at the bottom of the screen. You can use the tools to edit the image or, if you do nothing, the screenshot will be saved automatically to the Gallery app. You can take a screenshot by pressing the Volume Down and Power buttons.  How to take a screenshot on the Note 10 using a hand gesture Just like the Galaxy S10, you can take a screenshot on the Note 10 by swiping the edge of your palm across the screen. This should be turned on by default, but to make sure: 1. Open the Settings app. 2. Tap "Advanced features." 3. Tap "Motions and gestures." 4. Make sure "Palm swipe to capture" is on by swiping the switch to the right. If it's enabled, here's how to take a screenshot: 5. Go to the screen you want to screenshot. 6. Place your hand just beyond either the left or right side of the phone, with your palm aligned with the edge of the screen so your pinkie is touching the side of the phone.  7. In one smooth motion, slide your palm across the phone. You can do this in either direction – right-to-left or left-to-right.  This method is pretty tricky to do and takes some practice. Even with practice, though, it's prone to error — you'll probably find that more often than not, your palm triggers a button or swipes the entire screen instead of taking the screenshot.  How to take a screenshot on the Note 10 using Bixby Bixby, which is Samsung's personal assistant (similar to Apple's Siri), can take a screenshot on your behalf. If Bixby has been set up and is able to listen for commands, do this: 1. Go to the screen you want to screenshot. 2. Tap and hold the power button. 3. Once Bixby appears, continue to hold the power button and say, "Take a screenshot."  Bixby will take a screenshot and save the image in the Gallery. How to take a screenshot on the Note 10 using the S Pen Finally, you can use the S Pen to take a screenshot — with annotations.  1. Remove the S Pen from its slot at the bottom of the Note 10.  2. Use the S Pen to tap the Air Command button on the right side of the screen.  3. In the pop-up menu, tap "Screen write." 4. The Note 10 will take a screenshot, which you can now draw on with the stylus.  5. When you're done, tap Save at the top-right of the screen.  Related coverage from Tech Reference: How to block unwanted text messages from the same number on any Android phone How to clear the Bluetooth cache on your phone or tablet to fix issues with your connection 'What is Gboard?': Google's smart keyboard for phones and tablets, explained How to delete an email account on your Android device in 6 simple steps How to enable cookies on an Android device in Google Chrome to save your data and optimize your web browsing SEE ALSO: The best true wireless earbuds Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why thoroughbred horse semen is the world's most expensive liquid
You can turn on Google Chrome's "dark mode" to make browsing easier on your eyes and conserve battery on your device.  Windows, Mac, and iPhone devices have their own dark mode settings, which will make Google Chrome open in dark mode when activated. Only Android allows you to update Google Chrome from directly within Chrome's settings. You can also install an extension or theme that will let you put Google Chrome into dark mode on your own, or browse Chrome in "incognito mode." Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. Dark mode is all the rage nowadays, and it seems like every app has it. After all, browsing in dark mode is both easier on the eyes, and lets the content of every website stand out more. However, making Google Chrome go into dark mode isn't as easy as some other apps. On most devices, there's no switch you can flip, or box you can check off. Instead, to use dark mode in Chrome, you'll have to either edit your device's settings, download an extension or theme, or browse in incognito mode.  Here's how to do all of these, and start browsing in dark mode in Chrome on your Mac, PC, iPhone, or Android. Check out the products mentioned in this article: How to turn on dark mode in Google Chrome on a Mac This method is performed through your Mac's system preferences, and it will set most of your applications to dark mode, not just Google Chrome.  1. Ensure that you're running macOS Mojave or later, and then click the Apple icon in the top left corner of your screen. Click "System Preferences..." in the menu that appears. 2. Hit "General." It should be one of the first options. 3. At the top of the page, there will be three options: "Light," "Dark," and "Auto." Select "Dark" to immediately put Chrome into dark mode, or "Auto" if you only want dark mode to activate at night. How to turn on dark mode in Google Chrome on a PC 1. On a computer running Windows 10 or later, click the Windows icon in the bottom left corner, or tap the Windows key on your keyboard to open the "Start" menu. Then click the icon that looks like a gear — this is the icon for your settings. 2. Select "Personalization" from the list of options. 3. Hit "Colors" in the left toolbar. Scroll down, and under "Choose your default app mode," select "Dark." Chrome will turn dark immediately. How to turn on dark mode in Google Chrome using an extension or theme One of the best things about Google Chrome is that if you find a feature it's missing, there's a good chance you can add that feature yourself with an extension or theme. There are several extensions and many themes that will make Google Chrome display in dark mode. To find them, you'll need to head to the Google Chrome Web Store and search for "dark mode." Once you do, you have a lot of options. Here are some examples. The extension "Dark Theme for Chrome" will give you a button that, when clicked, will change the colors on any webpage so white becomes black, black becomes white, and more. You can change the exact colors at any time. "Material Incognito Dark Theme" will immediately darken your toolbars, but won't change anything on the websites you browse. You can edit your themes whenever you like.  Search for the extension or theme you like best. How to turn on dark mode in Google Chrome on an iPhone You can turn on dark mode in the Google Chrome app on your iPhone by going to "Display & Brightness" in your iPhone's "Settings" menu, and choosing "Dark" or "Automatic." If your iPhone lacks dark mode, there's an alternative you can use to change the theme of Google Chrome through your Accessibility settings:  1. Go into your phone's "Settings" app. 2. Scroll down and tap "Accessibility." 3. Select "Display and Text Size." 4. Under "Vision," toggle on either "Classic Invert" or "Smart Invert," depending on your preferences. Your phone will flash and then immediately transition to the new mode. 5. This adjustment will affect all applicable apps, including Google Chrome.  How to turn on dark mode in Google Chrome on an Android If you have an Android 5 device or higher, you can turn on dark mode directly in Google Chrome's settings menu.  1. Open Google Chrome on your Android device.  2. In the "More" menu at the top right corner of the app (designated by three vertical dots), select "Settings," then choose "Themes." 3. Choose dark mode, or alternatively, light mode. You can also choose system default mode if you want Chrome to go dark only when your battery save mode is turned on, or if your Android device settings are set to dark mode for all applications.   Related coverage from Tech Reference: How to enable Facebook's dark mode on your phone or computer, if the feature's available How to turn on Dark Mode on your Windows 10 computer to reduce eye strain and give everything a sleek look How to make Gmail display in dark mode on an iPhone in 2 ways How to get dark mode on the Apple Music app on your iPhone or Android device How to turn on Dark Mode on YouTube to reduce eye strain and make videos stand out on your screen SEE ALSO: The best all-in-one PCs you can buy Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: July 15 is Tax Day — here's what it's like to do your own taxes for the very first time

Like your computer, the Google Chrome browser comes with its own full set of keyboard shortcuts.  While Chrome's keyboard shortcuts are available across devices, they will differ slightly depending on the operating system you have. There are Chrome keyboard shortcuts for tab and window navigation, browser features and tools, the address bar, and more. Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. When used, keyboard shortcuts can save users a lot of time.  Google Chrome makes keyboard shortcut use easy, providing a plethora of options for navigating the browser.  For some of those shortcuts, the differences between PC and Linux users and Mac users is merely the difference between the "Ctrl" key and the "Command" key. But other shortcuts are more specific to each kind of computer system, so it's important to note which system you're operating on if you want a seamless experience using keyboard shortcuts. If you're using Mac Catalina (or something newer), keyboard navigation is turned on by default in your system preferences, but for other operating systems, you may need to enable it.  If you're ready to start using keyboard shortcuts, here are the Chrome shortcuts available to Windows, Linux, and Mac users.
