E Favorites Shortcut

E
Favorites Shortcut
Typically, when
you add a Web site as a favorite using Internet Explorer, you're able
to access it from the Favorites menu at the top of
the page. Of course, there are other ways to get to your Favorites,
but that's the most common way.

On the other hand,
a lesser known method is to directly type the name of your favorite
Web site into the address bar, turning each favorite into a shorter
URL. If you're not sure how to do that, keep reading, because that's
exactly what we're going to cover today!

1.) First, go
to a Web site you would like to create a shortcut URL for. In this
example, we'll visit http://www.worldsay.com.

2.) Click on Favorites
and then choose Add to Favorites.

3.) Under the
Name: section, it currently says “WorldStart
Homepage - Computer Tips, Software and More!” That's simply
the title of the WorldStart homepage. Go ahead and highlight all of
that text and then change it to something much easier for you to remember.
For example, you could call it “WS” (without the quotes),
which stands for “WorldStart.” Make sure you select Favorites
under the Create in: section and then click OK.


Next, change the
text in the red box to this:


4.) Now that you
have the site shortcut as “WS,” open up another Internet
Explorer window and type “WS” (without the quotes) into
the address bar. Then click Go.

You'll then be
sent to WorldStart's homepage. Now, all you have to do to get to the
homepage every time is type "WS" into the address bar and
hit Enter. It works like a charm!

This can be handy
if you want to visit a Web site that has a really long URL and you
don’t want to waste time looking through all of your Favorites.
You can assign each Web site a shortcut word or phrase for easy access.
Give it a try today!
