How to Snap to Address Bar

Snap to Address Bar:

What is address bar?(see picture below)


In Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer, there's an area referred to as the Address Bar. This is where you type in the URL of a web site, or the drive and path to a folder. Normally if you want to type in an address manually, you would click in that area with the mouse. There is a keyboard shortcut that will automatically snap the cursor to that area, however.

Just press ATL+D (that's the Alternate key then the d key) and you are now ready to enter a new address in the Address Bar.
