Neat Netflix Trick

Believe it or not, my cat, Maru, found this trick by accident. This little trick allows you to skip through the portions of a show that you don't want to see (like the intro or the credits). So far, this only works for me in Full-Screen Mode, and I've had it work in window-mode a few times, but it's nice to share regardless.

Here's what to do:

  1. In "Full-Screen Mode", press Shift+Enter, and you should get a screen like below:

  2. You can move between sections of the film/episode/etc in several second-based intervals using the left and right arrow keys. In this example, this episode is 45:35, and this allows a person to skip in 10-second intervals.

  3. When you are at the section you want to resume, press Enter, you will get a small "Loading" bar, and you will get the place you selected without having to sit through boring scenes (like the Intro or credits)


I don't know how many people know this trick, but I thought it would be nice to share.
