how to position cursor at address bar instead of bing when window opens RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I start IE 11 with msn.com as the home page, the cursor is positioned  in Bing search. I don't mean the Bing taskbar.

    Is there any way to position the cursor at address  bar ?  I know F6 will move the cursor or I can just click on it.

    My friend ( really ) just types without looking and is frustrated he is always in bing.  

    Thanks

  • WYSIWYG with msn.com as your homepage.

    Alt+D will position the cursor in Address bar.

  • Thanks, I didn't know that one.

    My question wasn't clear enough.

    Is there a way to automatically  set the cursor into the address bar when the homepage opens ?

    Can ALT+D be automatically executed when the homepage opens ?

    Thanks

    A1. No, not with the New MSN as your homepage.

    A2. No, with msn.com as your homepage, you'll need to execute the keyboard shortcut to place the cursor in Address bar.

    If you have further questions about customizing your msn.com homepage, you can begin your own, new thread in this Consumer-specific forum: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/newmsn/forum/newmsn_set
