View Full Version : IE6 -- Tab not working right

14-08-2002, 04:25 PM
Often when I want to create a new window in IE6 when it's running, I'll press Ctrl + N, and then quickly press Esc to stop loading the page, and then I'll press Tab to have the address bar be selected. A few days ago, Tab decided to stop doing that, and it now tries to bring up the Page could not be displayed error, but it won't even load that. To work around this, Shift + Tab works, but it's kind of annoying to have to hold down two buttons instead of one (man, I'm lazy). Is this problem fixable? I'm using XP Pro.

Alt + D will get you to the addy bar quick!
Still 2 buttons, but it's quick and eay, I'm so like you in doing that, maybe that's not a good thing though!

Hey, cool, thanks for that! Alt + D is much easier to press than Shift + Tab.
