How to get to your news groups and messages faster
You already know how to get to WWW sites and FTP sites using CTRL+L
in some browsers) or the "Location" (or "Address") input boxes -- simply type http://
followed by the address of the site. Did you know that you can use the same technique to get to your news groups and even news messages?
- Press CTRL+L (CTRL+O in some browsers)
- If you have only one news server setup or if you don't know the name of your news server (and still you can access news)...
OR, if you have multiple news servers...
- Press ENTER
You could also go to a particular message in a selected news group located on a given news server. Unfortunately, the message IDs that you have to remember in order to do this aren't that easy to remember.
