I found this in a few different places around the 'net - hopefully it's helpful:

Add Favorites with One Keystroke

You can quickly add a Web page to your Favorites folder with a single keystroke. The page is automatically added to your Favorites list without any further input from you.

  • Press Ctrl+D.

CSCGAL, A great tip. Unfortunately, because of Favorites problems, when I try to add with cntr+D I get the following msg:
Unable to create “Add Favorites with One Keystroke – Windows tips ‘n’ tweaks” The system cannot find the file specified
Any suggestions?
