Here are three time saving key combinations that every IE user should know: Ctrl+Enter: If you type the middle part of an address in the Address bar~ say, dummy-essentials.blogspot ~ and then press Ctrl+Enter, IE immediately puts http://www. on the front and .com on the back. Type dummy-essentials.blogspot and press Ctrl+Enter, and IE immediately knows to look for http://www.dummy-essentials.blogspot.com (This doesn’t work in Internet Explorer 6.1.) Ctrl+F5: If you think that the Web page is “stuck” — it isn’t being updated properly, perhaps because it’s been put in the cache on your PC — pressing Ctrl+F5 forces Internet Explorer to go out and get the latest copy of the current page. In theory, the browser even blasts past copies that are cached with your Internet service provider (which can be a real headache if your ISP is slow to update cached pages). Shift+click: When you click a link, sometimes the new page replaces the old window; sometimes the old window stays around, and the new one appears in a window of its own. Usually, the person who designs a Web page decides what happens, but you can take over. To force IE to open a Web page in a new window, hold down Shift while you click the link.
