    Select text and move around a webpage with the keyboard


    Rather than using a mouse to select text and move around within a webpage, you can use standard navigation keys on your keyboard—HOME, END, PAGE UP, PAGE DOWN, and the arrow keys. This feature is called Caret Browsing and is named after the caret—or cursor. This makes it easier to select, copy, and paste text to another document—without a mouse. With Caret Browsing on, move up, down, left and right on the webpage my pressing and holding the arrow keys. To select text, just move the cursor to the beginning of the text, hold down the SHIFT key and move the arrow keys until the text you want is selected. With text selected, you can copy (CTRL+C), and paste (CTRL+V), in a separate document. See below for steps to Enable Caret Browsing for New Windows and Tabs.

    Find text on a webpage


    With Internet Explorer 8 you can search within webpages more effectively. Earlier versions of Internet Explorer allowed you to find words or phrases in a webpage but Internet Explorer 8 provides these improvements:

    • The text box into which you type the words you want to find now appears on the tab row and not as a separate dialog box. This enables you to stay on the webpage and doesn't block parts of the page.

    • As you type words into the text box, the matching words are highlighted on the webpage, making it easy to quickly scroll the page and see all the instances of the words you're searching for. In addition, you can still click the Next and Previous buttons to move around the page just as you did in previous versions of Internet Explorer. This tutorial shows you how to find information on a webpage.

Internet Explorer 8 comes with a selection of Accelerators included by default, but you can add or remove them as you like. Find out more about Accelerators in Internet Explorer Help.
