Internet Explorer Tips & Tricks

>>Home >>Tips & Tricks

Most of the following web browser shortcuts not only work with Internet Explorer (IE) but also with other popular browsers including Firefox.

Easy URL Entry-Your New Favorite Shortcuts
How many times a day do you click into the Internet Explorer (IE) address bar and then type WWW [dot] SOMETHING [dot] COM? Try these great shortcuts together to speed up just about every entry into your browser address bar:

  • Go to the Address bar: [Alt] + D
     
  • To automatically add www. before, and .com after, what you're typing in the Address bar and go to that site: [Ctrl] + [Enter]

For instance, to go to the Microsoft website, press [Alt] + D, then type microsoft, and then press [Ctrl] + [Enter].

See how many clicks and keystrokes you can save with these two combinations.
