Generally, users have their own list of favorite websites that they visit almost every day or even several times a day. For instance, they log in to Gmail to check mail, read new posts from Fred's Head, monitor share prices at the stock market, etc. Users normally save these high-accessed websites in their favorite list in the IE browser for quick access and convenience.
If you think starting Internet Explorer, opening the Favorites list and locating the favorite is too tedious and you're looking for a faster solution, you should try assigning shortcut keys to access your favorite websites. Once the keys are set, users just need to press the keys and the particular site will be accessed. Let's say you assigned Ctrl+Shift+F” to open Fred's Head, you would simply press those keys to open Fred's Head, even if the browser is closed.
To set and assign shortcut keys to open a particular website in Internet Explorer, ensure the favorite site is saved in the Favorite List. Once it is saved, go to the Favorite's link in the favorites list, right click the link and choose “Properties”.
At the properties dialog, choose the Web Document tab. Click or tab to the “Shortcut Key” field. Press the preferred keys you wish to use to open that site. Click “Apply” to continue and "OK" to leave this screen.
