This week we’ll focus on browser shortcuts which work in both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
The first one is Ctrl+L. In Firefox, this jumps your cursor up to the URL bar, where you can type in a URL such as “www.google.com.” In Internet Explorer, an Open dialog box appears and you can type in a URL such as “www.google.com.”
If you want to jump your cursor up to the URL box, press Alt+D. (Thanks to Tony and Igg for the tip!)
Bonus Tip: Once your cursor is in the URL box, if you type in a word like “google” and press Ctrl+Enter, the browser will automatically expand it to the full URL name, “http://www.google.com,” (Sadly, this doesn’t work in IE’s Open dialog box.)
