Exclamation Making your computer's HOME KEY bring up New Posts

I'm a keyboard geek, and I like to move thru the forum fast.

I don't like to scroll up the page just to find an icon labeled "New Posts".

At the top of any page, hover the mouse over 'New Posts' and right click.
Choose 'Copy Link Location'

Now, open up TOOLS/OPTIONS/GENERAL for Firefox and in the box for HomePage, paste in that link location.

Now, select one of the other categories (this saves the last entry)

You can close that tab out now. You have 2 brand new ways to get to 'New Posts'.

1, you click on the little House at the top of the page... the one in the browser's toolbar.

2, you press ALT-Home on the keyboard at the same time.

either way, up comes "new Posts" on the forum.

__________________________

Maybe you prefer Internet Explorer:

Hover over New Posts and right click:
choose Copy Shortcut

Open Tools/Internet Options

Make sure the 'General tab' is open.
In the big box labeled Home Page, paste in the link address.
Click on APPLY.

all done, works the same as before. ALT-Home on kybd, or click the house.

Maybe you prefer Chrome:

goto the top right corner of page, click on the 3 dark lines:
In the menu, choose Settings:
in the new window, under "on Startup" click on SET PAGES

Where it says "Add New Pages" paste in the Link Location.

If that is all you want, click OK. If you want more pages, click on Add Pages and make a new home page come up. Me? I want just one Home Page... too many tabs slows the browser down.

Use Opera? you are on your own... sorry.
