    ctrl-enter on the mac?
    Hi All,
    In the pc world I got really used to typing the domain such as yahoo, and then doing a control-enter and it would add the www. and the.com
    Is there some similar option in the mac world, or do I need to learn to type the whole thing again?

    Actually nothing is needed, just press return / enter. Try it type yahoo and hit enter.

    This is the biggest issue I run into when I am on a windows machine. I type in yahoo or whatever and hit enter and instead of taking me to www.yahoo.com it does a MSN search for it.

    I use Ctrl-Enter a lot on my Windows machine, so I was a bit annoyed when it wouldn't work in Safari or Firefox until I accidentally hit the Apple key and then Enter. Been using it ever since I stumbled upon this "discovery"
