Here are some great keyboard shortcuts for your Internet Explorer Browser!


This question was answered on July 25, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

When surfing on the web there is usually a lot of clicking here & there to move from place to place without even thinking twice about using our keyboard This should not be the case since it is often quicker & easier to use keyboard shortcuts to get there I have compiled together a list of frequently used keystroke combinations that you may find quite helpful.

Internet Explorer Keyboard Shortcuts:

1 Alt D selects the Address bar.

2 Ctrl O brings up the Open dialog box for browsing to another Web site.

3 Ctrl N opens a new browser window

4 Backspace is the same as choosing the Back button.

5 Shift-Backspace is the same as clicking the Forward button.

6 The F5 key will refresh the screen

7 Use F11 to toggle between a full screen and normal view.

8 CTRL D will add the current page to you favorites.

9 Ctrl-W Close current Window

10 Ctrl-A Select All

These tricks should improve your browsing time with a little practice.
