Internet Explorer 5 Tips and Tricks


A small new feature that is likely to to help you avoid the common errors caused by mistyping the syntax of an address is called Auto-Correct. This functions in the Address Bar, it automatically corrects common typos (Mistakes) in the "http://" and "ftp://" part of an address. For example, if you miss one of the "t"s from "http://" it will be added in by the browser itself to avoid you getting a message that the site doesn't exist. It also corrects mistakes like "ftp:. etc

The Auto-Complete function adds to this Auto-Correct function by offering the addresses of pages that you have previously visited, which both saves time and reduces the likelihood of mistyping a long address.
