If you want to avoid typing the whole (http://www.domain.com)... just type the site name and hold the Ctrl key and press enter. Works for .com sites mostly (ie) pepsi then hold Ctrl and press enter, it will Automatically enter the http://www. for you. IE and Firefox.

Re: Tired of typing the full URL (http://www.domain.com)

This is an excellent tip that I've used for years and show people all the time. I'm surprised more people aren't aware of this, Laughing. Also, if you do a Shift + Enter instead, it'll fill in the www. + .net instead of .com, and CTRL+Shift with do a .org. Smile

Easy shortcut reference chart:

Just type any word in the URL bar, and then press

  • CTRL + Enter = .com
  • CTRL + Shift = .org
  • Shift + Enter = .net



Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?
