History

To find files you've recently opened, use History (menu bar).

Find on Page

Social Media Image 

You can choose a different social media image than the default when creating a new page. Simply, browse to it. If Facebook isn't displaying the image, use Facebook's Debugger to clear their cache.

Hard Refresh

You've published changes to a page, but your changes aren't displaying - press Shift and click the browser's refresh button. This will force your web browser to download the page again. If that doesn't work, clear your browser's cache.
