This week, I have more Windows more tips and shortcuts.
1. Adding Internet Prefixes and Suffixes
You can quickly add the www. and the .com to anything typed in the address bar by pressing Ctrl-Enter! I use this all the time and cuts down on the typing.
2. The Windows key.
Here are a list of things that the windows key can do!
Win Press windows key to open start menu
Win+R Apply to open Run dialog box
Win+M Apply to minimize all opened windows
Win+Shift+M Apply to maximize all opened windows
Win+L Press keys to lock keyboard in windows XP
Win+E Press keys to open My Computer
Win+F Apply to open search options
Win+U Apply keys to open Utility Manager
Win+D To view desktop/minimize all windows
Win+F1 To view the detail windows help page
Win+Pause To view the System Properties dialog box
Win+Tab Move through taskbar programs
Win+F+Ctrl Apply to open search for computers
And last but not least:
3. Browsing Your Computer via the Address Toolbar?
You can open any web page without opening the browser. Windows will open your browser and open your web page. You can do this if you put an Address Bar on your Taskbar:
Right click on your system taskbar > go to Toolbars and then click the Address option. Here you will see a mark on Address option. After this Address Bar will appear on your system taskbar, you can open any web page by typing the URL name here and press Enter.
You can also browse files and folders on your computer by using the Address Bar. Simply type drive letter like C:\ , D:\ in Address Bar and press Enter.
Have a great weekend.
