I'm not aware of a direct shortcut, but I use Win + B then Shift + Tab.

Ok... I lied. I binded the above to an AutoHotkey shortcut. But that still counts as using it, right? :)

+1 it seems to work without AutoHotkey too. –  Kez Aug 20 '10 at 12:54

The user is referring to the Address Bar toolbar that can be enabled on the taskbar in Windows. Alt+D will not put focus into that address bar. –  Oliver Salzburg Jul 27 '12 at 12:16
    
It did answer my question tho. –  Shimmy Aug 11 '13 at 23:04

If you mean windows explorer addressbar, then pressing F6 once or twice, depending on where you are, does the trick.

Also, you can find most shortcuts in windows 7 by going to help and support and searching for keyboard shortcuts. This should give you an article with a fairly exhaustive list of shortucts that can be used.

If you mean the Windows explorer address bar, simply hit F4, no need for AtuoHotKey.
