msconfig keyboard shortcut

A couple of weeks ago I read on one of the expert tip sites a couple of
keyboard shortcuts. I didn't commit them to memory then but would now like
to get them back. It was a shortcut to msconfig. Not the Win logo + r one,
that opens "run, type in msconfig" but skips that step and opens msconfig
directly. It also had a shortcut to write a name in OE address and after
pressing 2 keys Xp would wrap the http:\ and .com around the name. Does
anyone know where I might have seen this? It also had some other helpful
tips so I would like to find the site again. Thanks for your help.

I don't know exaclty which shortcut you are referring to,
but there is a way to create a shortcut to MSCONFIG so that
you can click on it and it will open it. to do that go here:

For the shortcut you want you will have to be more specific.

Can't help with the first question but on the 2nd one did you mean the
address bar of IE (you said OE), just type in the keyword such as ebay and
hold down the ctrl key and hit enter.

You can configure IE to add the www and com with ctrl-enter via tools
\ internet options \ advanced \ use inline autocomplete. Apply and
okay your way out.

Can't say I've ever encountered a keyboard shortcut to msconfig, but
there's Windowskey Break (Pause) to get to System Properties. Always
liked that one.

The easy way to get a hotkey for any program is to have a shortcut to
it on the desktop, or as one of the menu items in the Start - All
Programs . So make one for msconfig.exe by right dragging it
out of C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\
to the Desktop, take 'create shortcut here'. R-click and rename - say
just MSConfig, for convenience. R-click again and take Properties, and
in the shortcut key pane enter a letter - say M - which will then give
the hot key combination CTL-ALT-M (If you have an international
keyboard with an AltGr key this becomes equivalent to AltGr and M). Now
drag it up onto the Start - All Programs and into some convenient
sub-menu, like Accessories
