The Best Keystrokes for Internet Beginners

1. CTRL-T to launch a new browser tab page
Tabbed pages are very useful: they let you open multiple web pages simultaneously without the same memory load as a full browser window.  Simply press CTRL-T to launch a new tab.

Related: use CTRL-Page Up and CTRL-Page Down to navigate between the tabs.


2. CTRL-Enter to type 'www.' and '.com'
Once you have pressed ALT-D to focus on the browser address bar, you can save yourself even more typing.  Since many website addresses start with 'http://www.' and end with '.com', your browser will offer to type those portions for you.  You simply type the middle portion of the address (called the mid-level domain).

Try it:

press ALT-D or click to focus on your address bar  (the entire address should be block-selected in blue now)
Type CNN
Press CTRL-Enter
More Tips:

if you press ALT-CTRL-Enter, you visit the web page and launch a new browser tab page at the same time
SHIFT-Enter is for .net web addresses
SHIFT-CTRL-Enter is for .org web addresses
