Tip of the Day: IE 11 allows you to skip Intranet search


Today’s Tip…

When using Internet Explorer 11, here is a quick way to skip the Intranet search.  So let’s say I want to search the Internet by just using the word ‘performance’ but I don’t want to end up at my companies performance review site, I can preface the word ‘performance’ with a question mark (?).  So I’d type in ‘?performance’ and IE will start searching the Internet, ignoring the corporate Intranet.  This effectively bypasses my ‘Go to an intranet site for a single word entry in the address bar’ setting.

  1. Correct. It should be intranet. I'll fix it. 🙂

    Unless I mistaken, in the line, "This effectively bypasses my ‘Go to an internet site for a single word entry in the address bar’ setting.", "internet" should be "intranet".

    Now just have to find the search bar where this works!
