Fingertips

Open Your Favorite Websites Super-Fast

Want to open your favorite websites much quicker than you’re used to? Fingertips makes it so easy for you.

After setting up each favorite website only once, you can keep opening it with Fingertips all the time — thousands of time per day if you want.

Create a new command for your favorite website

  1. Surf to your favorite website in your browser
  2. Go to the Address Bar at the top (in many browsers, just use Alt+D)
  3. Select the entire URL in the Address Bar (Ctrl+A)
  4. Copy the URL to the Windows Clipboard (Ctrl+C)
  1. Open Fingertips (Ctrl+`)
  2. Type a new, unique command for opening your favorite website (i.e. “favsite”):
  1. Press Alt+E (for the “New” button)
  2. This opens the Fingertips Option Dialog, with the URL from the clipboard automatically pasted as the Filename/Url
  1. Finally, press Alt+O (for the Ok button)

That’s it for setting up your new command.

Use the new command to open your favorite website

From now on you can just open Fingertips (Ctrl+`), type your new command “favsite” and press Enter to surf to your favorite website.

Hints

Hint: the shorter your new command, the easier to type it. Some of the commands I personally use most, are made up of just a single letter, like “n” or “x” or “o”.

If you do want to use long command names, the more unique the first couple of characters, the quicker Fingertips will find it for you, once you start typing your long command in the command window.

Don’t forget that adding a Fingertips command for your favorite websites also works for intranet sites or for online collaboration websites that you use. The harder to reach the page, the more time you save by creating a Fingertips command for it.

Just try it with a website you open daily.

Enjoy 🙂
