I have long been trying to find a short-cut that would allow me to jump right to the address bar in Internet Explorer. You know since I don't like to take my hands off of the keyboard unless I have to, right. ;-) Well, I finally put a little more effort into finding it and today the technology gods have smiled down on me so I thought I would share it.
So, if you want to put focus on the address bar while browsing a web page it ALT-D, and it will select everything in the address bar and allow you to enter the new address you want to visit. Here is the link to the Microsoft Support that provides a good list of keyboard shortcuts in Internet Explorer http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306832.
It feels kind of funny posting this now, you see I have been sick for the last few days and haven’t really been checking my email like I should. Well, today I called Randy Walker and before saying anything else he says “Congrats”, it took me a second to figure out what he was talking about. So, I went to read my email and there it was, an email from Microsoft telling me that I had been awarded the ASP .NET MVP. I feel extremely honored to have received such an award.
I want to thank everyone in Northwest Arkansas, the South Central District, and INETA for helping and supporting our community efforts in my area. It has been a joy to build the community in Northwest Arkansas and watch it grow. I can’t wait to see what new heights we can achieve now, and hope to see more Arkansas MVPs as the result.
Thanks to everyone for the congrats and you can rest assured I will use this to benefits the community and share as much as I can.
