Cool Keyboard Tip

Flipping through the Reader's Digest superb '1001 Computer Hints & Tips' (I don't just read art books!) I noticed a clever little keyboard shortcut you might find very useful.

Instead of typing in the http://www. before the domain name, and the .com after it, just type in the site’s domain name into the address bar. Then tap CTRL and ENTER keys together. This adds both the http://www. and the .com and works in both Internet Explorer and FireFox browser. Well, anything to save a few moments in our busy, busy world!

OK, so it might not be for advanced webmasters used to all manner of code or javascript matters but
really folks, for most users, this is an absolute gem of a book. Tip after eye-opening tip. Magic!
