An overlooked IE feature

An often overlooked Internet Explorer feature is its search ability. All you have to do is use a question mark on your address bar.

Example: "? basketweaving" entered into the title bar will forward the query to your search engine of choice. Don't forget to customize your search settings and select which engine you want with the Autosearch Settings option.

In your browser window, click the Search button on the toolbar. The Search window will appear on the left side. Select Customize from the Search title bar, followed by AutoSearch Settings.
