Use Ctrl+Enter to Complete URL

I know what you are thinking. You want to open http://www.howtogeek.com, but it’s such a hassle to type in the http:// and the www and the .com. Here’s your shortcut method.

On modern browsers, such as IE8 and Firefox, hitting Ctrl + Enter will automatically fill in the www. and the .com part of the URL. Let’s see an example:

Just type in howtogeek into the address bar in your browser:

Now hit Ctrl + Enter together:

You saved yourself 15 keystrokes!

More Keystroke combinations:

* Ctrl + Enter – Auto-complete *.com address
* Shift + Enter – Auto-complete *.net address
* Ctrl + Shift + Enter – Auto-complete *.org address

If you add Alt to any of those key combinations, it will auto-complete and open the new address in a new tab as well. Alt+Ctrl+Enter will auto-complete a *.com address in a new tab, for instance.
