* The release of [[MacOS OS X Mavericks]] saw the switching of the positions of the "Open in New Tab" and "Open in New Window" options in Safari's right-click menu. Now, users used to the earlier layout (especially frequent TVTropes browsers) will be constantly opening windows instead of tabs by accident.

* On nearly every PC web browser, F5 refreshes the current page. On {{Twitter}}'s website, however, that is overriden; F5 retweets a tweet instead!

* In ''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Webcomic/Xkcd?from=Main.XKCD xkcd]]'', a few measures of theme music are enough to get a guy into the rhythm of ''VideoGame/KatamariDamacy'', a game that involves colliding with small objects. Unfortunately, [[http://xkcd.com/161/ this happens while he's driving a car]].

* Most public computers (such as those in libraries or internet cafes) have special time limit software installed along with procedures on how to log out. Oftentimes, you are not supposed to use the normal log out or shut down options like you would with your own home or work computer (doing so would inconvenience those wanting to use it after you as staff have to restart the computer again).

* Talking about Chinese and Japanese, Chinese characters and kanji use the same symbols, but are often pronounced and can mean quite different things. For example, 大丈夫 is "daijoubu" in Japanese and means "alright" while in Chinese it is "da zhang fu" and means "true man" or "great husband". It is common for native speakers to start reading the characters in their native language before the brain kicks in and realises they're using the wrong pronunciation.

It is common for native speakers to start reading the characters in their native language before the brain kicks in and realises they're using the wrong pronunciation. Some hanzi and kanji also look very similar but have minor yet significant differences, such that accidentally writing it the way one used to might not give the right result in the other language.

* In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' the Winter Soldier is able to effortlessly catch and later briefly fight with Captain America's shield. The way the Winter Soldier handles the shield is 100% muscle memory, whether he realizes it or not. The Winter Soldier is probably accustomed to encountering weapons that he can use, with no memory of learning how to use them [[spoiler: because his memory is repeatedly wiped]], so he does not appear to question his ability to use it. However, the shield isn't the sort of weapon the Winter Soldier would have been trained to use, and it isn't the sort of weapon anyone, even a well-trained fighter, would be able to just pick up and use naturally. There was no moment where he went, “What the hell is this thing and how do I use it?” He picked it up and used it as naturally as any other weapon in his arsenal. That level of familiarity takes practice, practice he got as [[spoiler: Bucky Barnes, training with Steve Rogers and the other Commandos]].

* The ''Anime/YourName'' side novel ''Another Side: Earthbound'' mentions that one of the difficulties Taki had in getting used to Mitsuha's body was that her smaller stature kept throwing him off.
