At my office, we are soon upgrading to Internet Explorer version 7. I know a lot of you have already upgraded, but we needed to make sure it was going to work with the many applications we use through a browser. So I thought I would put together some shortcuts to help in using Internet Explorer version 7 for Windows:

    • F11: Toggle Full Screen Mode on and off.
    • TAB: Move forward through items on a web page, the Search Box, or the Address box.

    • CTRL+A: Select all items on the current page.
    • CTRL+PLUS: Zoom in.
    • CTRL+MINUS: Zoom out.
    • CTRL+0 (Zero): Zoom to 100%.
    • ALT+HOME: Go to home page.
    • ALT+LEFT: Go backward.
    • ALT+RIGHT: Go forward.
