A. A. If you open IE and type "ntfaq" into the address bar, then press Ctrl + Enter, the "http://www." and ".com" are automatically added to the text—the result being http://www.ntfaq.com.

You can change the registry to modify the pre-text and post-text additions. Follow these steps:

  1. Start the registry editor (regedit.exe).
  2. Navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar registry key .
  3. Open the Edit menu, and select New, Key.
  4. Enter QuickComplete.
  5. Under the new key, create a String value by entering New, String Value and name it QuickComplete, and press Enter.
  6. Double-click the new value and set it to "www.%s.com" if you want .net to be the default extension, and click OK.
You don't have to restart IE for the change to take effect.
