Set Shortcut Key
Here's a cool way to bring up a Web site you use often. It takes a little work, but really makes viewing the page a breeze. First open the page you want to bookmark. Select the page icon (to the far left in the Address Bar) and drag it to the desktop. A shortcut now appears. Right-click it. From the dialog box that opens, click the Shortcut Key text box. Type a shortcut letter, one you'll remember. For instance, to create a shortcut for Yahoo, you might type


and Windows displays Ctrl-Alt-Y.

You're almost set. Now click the OK button to apply the changes and close the dialog box. From now on, when you press Ctrl-Alt-Y, IE 5 opens the page.
