I can open internet links in Notepad++ by double clicking on a link. Is there a way to do this only using keyboard? I mean are there any key board short cuts to achieve this?

do you mean href links, and when you open you say they open in browser. Not sure what you are asking. – defau1t Jul 12 '12 at 7:48

Officially, no. At least in Notepad++ 6.1.2

In Settings > Preferences > Misc you have only "Enable Clickable Links" - not a word about keyboard.

In Settings > Shortcut Mapper > Main Menu, Run commands or Scintilla Commands there is no reference to this.

A macro cannot be recorded with this in order to assign a shortcut to this macro.

The "Launch in..." commands send the entire file to the chosen browser.

Of course, if you'll find a suitable plugin to do just that then you're lucky. Install it and assign a shortcut to it.

...but if you're quite extreme you can enable (on Windows) Mouse Keys and use the numeric pad as a mouse, hence you'll have the "left click" on the keyboard.
