Internet Explorer (8.0 and Higher) Shortcuts

BY J. CARLTON COLLINS

1. Ctrl + Enter: When typing a Web address into your browser’s address box, pressing Ctrl + Enter will automatically insert the www. and .com. For example, type hp into the address bar and press Ctrl + Enter to quickly navigate to the www.hp.com website.

 

2. Ctrl + T: Opens a new (blank) tab window, and makes that tab the active window.

 

3. Ctrl + Click on a hyperlink: This makes the hyperlink launch in a new tab in the background (that is, the new tab does not become the active tab).

 

4. Ctrl + Shift + Click on a hyperlink: This makes the hyperlink launch in a new tab in the foreground (the new tab becomes the active tab).

 

5. Ctrl + N (where “N” is a number between 1 and 9): This makes that tab number the active window. For example, if you have five tabs open, pressing Ctrl + 4 would make the fourth tab active.

 

6. Ctrl + Q: Toggle Quick Tabs (thumbnail view) on or off, as shown below.

 

7. Ctrl + Scroll mouse wheel: Rolling the mouse wheel forward and backward while holding down the Ctrl key zooms in and out of the Web page. (This works in Word and Excel, too.)

 

8. Ctrl + Plus sign: Increase zoom (+10%).

 

9. Ctrl + Minus sign: Decrease zoom (+10%).

 

10. Click, Shift click: Clicking one point on a Web page then holding the Shift key and clicking another point on the Web page selects all content between those two points. (This is useful for copying or printing.)
