I've searched and searched, and I haven't found a yes or no answer to this question.

It seems that nearly every site I visit thes days wants me to register with them before I can access the information I'm looking for. This is a serious pain in the butt when I just want to see if the site even has the information or program that I need. And it seems that every one of them wants you to type your e-mail address at least twice.

So here's the question - is it possible to program a certain key combination to insert the e-mail address for me? For instance, ti would be so much simpler and less time consuming to simply press Ctrl + F12 to insert my e-mail address, rather than typing it out several times and then having to make sure there are no typos in any of the duplications ( I don't always tupe so giid). :thumbsup:

My solution to this-open Notepad. Type your email address, save the notepad file to your desktop.
When you are asked for your email address, open the file, copy then paste the address.

Try a google search for Macros - that'll help you to setup the key combinations that you want.

That'd be more trouble than typing and re-typing my e-mail address. I'm trying to make things simpler, not more complicated. :thumbsup:
