List Of Internet Explorer Keyboard Shortcuts



Sick of jumping back and forth from the keyboard to the mouse while surfing? There are several keyboard shortcuts that will save you time. It does take a little while to remember them all, but once you do you will surfing from site to site in record time.

All shortcuts consist of a typing one or a combination of keys. If you see a plus (+) sign, it signals you to hit both keys simultaneously.
