Access Your Browser’s Address and Search Bar via the Keyboard

Posted on: May 20, 2011

You’re browsing the web, going to all the sites you love, and you’re coming down with hand cramps from constantly going back to the mouse just to go back to the address bar so you can type in your next destination. These keyboard shortcuts can save you the trouble.

Making the trip up to your browser’s address bar directly from the keyboard is very easy, but it does vary from browser to browser. Here’s a breakdown:

Firefox: Control/Command + L
Chrome/Safari/WebKit: Control/Command + L
Internet Explorer: Alt + D
Opera: Control/Command + L

Here’s an added bonus. If your browser has a separate search box

Firefox: Control/Command + K
Safari: Command + Option + F
Internet Explorer: Control + E
Opera: Control/Command + E
