Secret Internet Explorer Tips – Keyboard Shortcuts You’ll Be Glad To Know About
Today, I have 3 tips that will save you from getting tennis elbow from grabbing that mouse every minute or so when you’re browsing the web.
- “REFRESH THE PAGE” KEYBOARD SHORTCUT – Use the F5 key to quickly reload/refresh the website you’re on instead of dragging the mouse to find that refresh double arrow icon on that tiny toolbar.
- “TIME TO MOVE ON” KEYBOARD SHORTCUT – Use the F6 key to automatically jump to the address bar and highlight the entire line — thus when you start typing, you’ll just replace what’s up there and easily type in the next website you want to go to.
- “GO” KEYBOARD SHORTCUT – I’m still amazed to see so many people type in a URL in the address bar and then go for that mouse to click on the “GO” button to visit the next site. How about just hitting the “ENTER” key right after you finish typing the URL? (this one is in the “duh, why didn’t I think of that” category of tips).
And here’s an Outlook keyboard shortcut tip:
- Use the F9 key to automatically SEND/RECEIVE all your email.
