Does anyone know how to open address bar searches in new tabs in Internet Explorer 9?
Enter the address or search term into the address bar then press:
Alt + Enter
This will open the search results or the address in a new tab. It works in Internet Explorer 7, 8 and 9, Firefox and Google Chrome. In Opera it is Ctrl + Enter.
I don't know if you can, but one pretty easy shortcut is to press ctrl, then quickly do T, then E. That opens a new tab then immediately puts you in the search bar, ready to type.
Once you get used to it, it's pretty fast.
