I see keyboard and shortcut keys for Windows all of the time, but I don’t see any for Internet Explorer. Do any Internet Explorer shortcut keys exist?

Yes, Bryan, they certainly do. Here you go:

F3 – Toggle on/off search panel.
F4 – Pull down address bar.
F5 – Refresh current page.
F6 -Move focus to address bar.
F11 – Toggle on/off full-screen mode
Alt + (Left Arrow) – Go back on history (same as Backspace).
Alt + (Right Arrow) – Go forward on history.
Ctrl + A – Select All.
Ctrl + C – Copy Selected.
Ctrl + E – Search panel.
Ctrl + F – Find (on page).
Ctrl + H – Toggle History panel.
Ctrl + I – Toggle Favorites panel.
Ctrl + L – Open a File.
Ctrl + N – Open New browser window.
Ctrl + P – Print current page.
Ctrl + R – Refresh. Same as F5.
Esc – Stop (while page is loading).
Ctrl + D – Add the current page to Favorites.
Double-click (on a word) – Select the word.
Triple-click (on a word) – Select entire line.
Wheel click – Activate the Smooth scrolling
Hold Ctrl + Scroll Wheel forward – Increase font size
Hold Ctrl + Scroll Wheel backward – Decrease font size
Click one point then hold down Shift and then click another – Create a selection from the two points

Have fun!

    You gave keyboard shortcuts for Internet Explorer. One of them was for “copy”, but I don’t see one for “paste”?
