Internet CTRL+enter option?

You know when you type a keyword into the addrss bar and then press CTRL + ENTER, it automatically turns it into "click here"...

Is there a way to change this so it adds "co.uk" instead of ".com"? Or is there another key combination?

Maybe you would have been better off putting this in the Helproom instead of ConsumerWatch.

I don't know whether it's possible to change it - you might find something in the Registry but I wouldn't recommend messing about in there.

I assume you are using Internet Explorer. Which version or IE and Windows?

WHOOPS! As far as I was aware I DID put it in the helproom. I wasn't even aware of the ConsumerWatch tab. Must've been a mis-click. I wondered why it didn't appear....

Yup, using Internet Explorer and version 6.026 at that. Also on XP...

If you are still going to use Ctrl & Enter I suggest you make a backup of your registry before you do this, so if it goes wrong you can restore it.

The Autosearch option is a daft idea - it actually takes longer because you are loading 2 sites instead of one!

By the way - when I said it was a daft idea I didn't mean it was daft to suggest it, just that it's not very practical to use just for the sake of not typing .co.uk and its only real use is if you aren't sure what the site is.
