Control/Enter shortcut in IE broke

by lambo13 / March 17, 2005 10:06 PM PST

The Control/Enter shortcut in IE to add the http:// and .com (which I use constantly) suddenly stopped working. I don't know what changed, and I ran three different virus/spyware scans, all of which came up with nothing. I run XP/SP2 with IE6. Thanks for the help!

I took your subject as the Google which is: http://www.google.com/search?q=Control%2FEnter+shortcut+in+IE+broke

Just 7 itmes down I read http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?t=117534 and they noted "OKAY......I have finally fixed this problem on my own. I was looking in internet options under the content tab. When you click the autocomplete button you will see a choice for address, as long as that is marked, you can use the "control/enter" shortcut to enter the address when it is a "www dot com"."

Try that.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
