Ok, I know that there are a lot of shortcuts that you can use on Windows and other systems like Ctrl-C and things like that. I was just wondering out of curiosity if there's a way to select specific links on a web page without a mouse by the name of the link (not the url it goes to). I know that you can use Tab to select links, but that indiscriminately selects things in order from top of the page to the bottom and takes far too long. Is there any shortcut that can do what I want?

you go to a webpage with let's say 12 hyperlinks...labled a, b, c, d, and so on

you want a shortcut to click on link c without a mouse...correct?

Yes, you have it right. It's too bad that there isn't a shortcut that will do that because it'd definitely be handy. I guess I can live with the Ctrl-F and Tab buttons for now. Also, is there a way to select icons on the desktop when one isn't automatically selected at startup (without a mouse)?

These special keystrokes are called "hotkeys", not shortcuts. Shortcuts are files on the HDD that contain a destination such as a URL or another file.

i think the OP meant shortcuts as in an easier way to do it...not as in a shortcut on the desktop...not all "shortcuts" in windows are hotkeys
