Quicker IE address typing

searchWin2000 member John Wilson shares a nifty shortcut for typing URLs into your browser's address window.

I've been amazed at how often I use this simple tip, and how much easier and quicker it makes my Internet browsing.

In Internet Explorer, when typing in an address of the form "www.something.com," just type the "something" part in the address bar. Then press Ctrl-Enter and IE will automatically add the "www." to the front and the ".com" to the end of "something."
