Hot keys & tips for quicker web surfing

First, practice using the numeric keypad to access your favorites. It only takes a few times to get comfortable doing this and you will save a lot of time and effort throughout your internet surfing experience. If you don't have a numeric keypad there two other options which act as numeric keypads:

Second, try learning some of the hot keys for moving between web pages. For example, on Internet explorer:

Third, if you are using a browser which allows you to create multiple tabs, make it so when you create a new tab the tab goes to your home page. For example, in Internet Explorer 8 you would go to Tools --> Internet Options --> Settings (in the tabs section, at the bottom of the General tab).


If you are having trouble getting the weather to find your city try following these steps to search By "Where On Earth ID" (woeid). To find your woeid, browse or search for your city from Yahoo Weather page. The woeid is in the URL for the forecast page for that city. You can also get the woeid by entering your zip code on that page. For example, if you "Change location" for Sunnyvale, the forecast page for that city is https://www.yahoo.com/news/weather/united-states/sunnyvale/sunnyvale-2502265. The woeid is 2502265. Once you have your woeid, when you search for weather on piggy's page enter: WOEID: #######. Replace the pound signs with your woeid.
