Open the Silent navigation sound
A major improvement in IE9 's design is to downplay itself, highlighting the Web page. Hiding and simplifying many of the previous interface elements, trying to make users ignore their own existence, and concentrate on experiencing the beauty of the network. In addition to the concept embodied in the visual aspect, but also reflected in the auditory aspects: in IE9, the default to cancel the browser's own navigation sound, only play the Web page for users to provide music!
In this way, when we click on the link in the IE9, we will not hear the previous "click" Sound, or the sound will not play when we pop the yellow balloon. Because IE9 's cue box is redesigned to the bottom of the page and is light yellow, it is visually too easy to be ignored by users, and may not be appropriate for some users.
Fortunately, we can still set this beep to open. Just click on the button in the top right corner of the window, turn on the Internet option, switch to the Advanced tab, find the Accessibility settings category, and tick the "Play system Sound", and IE9 will no longer "mute":
Page save one key to fix
The students who are familiar with shortcut keys know that in the Windows program, Ctrl+s are "save" shortcuts, but in the IE8 to the favorite Web page to save to the hard disk, we can only find "Save as" command in the page menu, and there is no shortcut keys can be operated, more inconvenient.
But in the IE9, just press the General Ctrl+s key, you can save the Web page, do not need to do a layer of menu selection, is not more convenient?
Navigation URL Quick Input
Another similar improvement is the Ctrl+l shortcut, which pops up the Open dialog box before the IE9 version. In the address bar has been deeply rooted in today, this dialog box is really chicken.
IE9 development team to improve this, in the IE9 press ctrl+l shortcut keys, you can directly transfer the cursor to the address bar, so that users type the URL, the original "Open" dialog box can be through the Ctrl+o shortcut keys pop-up.
In this way, the user experience between different browsers is more unified, because the Ctrl+l and alt+d two shortcuts in IE9, Firefox and Google browsers can achieve the same function-move the cursor to the address bar.
Navigation history Quick Access
There is a small arrow next to the IE8 forward and Back button, which lets you view and quickly jump to a previously visited page without having to click the Forward and Rewind buttons again and again.
In IE9 's streamlined interface, you can't see the arrow buttons next to each other, how can you use this handy feature in IE8? In fact, access to navigation records in a new version is more convenient than ever before, and there are three ways to do this:
1. Press the Forward or Back button (if available) to hold it for one second.
2. Click the right mouse button on the forward or Back buttons (if available).
3. Click on the Forward or Back button (if available), and drag down at the same time. This method is designed for touch control.
Access to all menu features
In IE8, with the addition of many functions, the number of menu commands has become unprecedented rich, reached a peak. and the IE 9 design concept is precisely streamlined, so have to a large number of cuts to the menu, in addition to merging into a gear button, leaving the command is very small, many commands here have not been found:
Oddly enough, the "menu bar" disappears as the right mouse button is clicked in a blank window. It seems that the design team is very concise and very thorough, do many functions will disappear in the IE9?
Don't worry, in order to ensure the integrity of the function, the new version of the software is not for no reason to remove the previous versions of the function. Just press the ALT key in the IE9 and the menu bar will appear temporarily, and we can find the command we need like IE8:
Search shortcut keys
In IE9, the search box and address bar are integrated, the address bar has the function of the search bar, can automatically determine whether we entered the URL or search keywords. But a smart classmate might think that if we were to search for a URL-like keyword, such as aa.cc format, the browser would not follow the Web site to visit it?
This, designers have already thought for us. Try pressing the Ctrl+e shortcut, the cursor will jump to the address bar, and will add a question mark at the front:
When we enter any text, it will be searched as a keyword. That is, whenever you add a question mark and a space in front of the address bar, the browser will search for any text without identifying it as a URL.
