Google makes it easy to return to the search box by pressing “https://www.engadget.com/”
Google has rolled out a new search shortcut that can quickly help you narrow down the results you get. Now, when you are on a results page, you can simply press “https://www.engadget.com/” to expand the search box. As noticed by 9to5Google, the tech giant has started notifying users about the new shortcut in a box in the lower left corner, which appears when you press any key on a results page.
When using the shortcut, you will be taken directly to the search box where the text cursor will appear next to your original query. The search box will expand even with common search suggestions related to the term you entered for the first time. This makes it ideal for use when you want to expose your original search – for example, if you want to refine the results page to show links to pages on the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra instead of the variant. non-Ultra – although you can also use “https://www.engadget.com/” for new search terms if you wish.
As 9to5Google notes, this feature joins the accessibility shortcut of tabs for google search. Pressing the tab button on a results page highlights links, allowing you to open websites without using a mouse or trackpad.
