  • Handy Internet Explorer Keyboard Shortcuts

    Here are keyboard shortcuts for use with Internet Explorer.  Most work on all versions since 4.01.  Not an exhustive list, just those that I use often.

    Space
    This scrolls downward a page at a time.  Note that oftentimes a form control or a ActiveX object (like Flash) can have the focus and consume the keystroke.

    ALT+Left Arrow and ALT+Right Arrow
    Move backwards and forwards.  Same as pressing the Back and Forward toolbar buttons.  Very handy

    CTRL+D
    Add the current page to Favorites without prompting

    ALT+D
    Move focus to the Address bar.  This is handy when you have a search toolbar, as you can then press TAB and have the focus placed in the search text box.

    ALT+HOME
    Go to your home page

    CTRL+N
    Open a new browser window

    F11
    Switch to full-screen mode.  Great when needing to maximize the viewing area
