2: The Old Switcheroo
If you're going to be chatting or surfing non-work sites, make sure that you keep at least a couple of other work-related programs and applications open. This way you can quickly switch back to an open Word document or Excel spreadsheet when the boss's head suddenly pops over the cube wall. The best way to quickly toggle between open application windows on a PC is by holding down the Alt + Tab keys. On a Mac, it's the "Open Apple" + Tab keys.
