One feature many want in Intenet Explorer is the Paste and Go functionality, which you get to see in Maxthon, Opera, Chrome or now even Firefiox!. With this feature you need to simply copy the url from anyhere, including a notepad, right click on the address bar and select Paste and Go, from the context menu, for the webpage to open directly. While by using IE7 Pro, you do get the option ‘Go to url’, you cannot copy it from, say, notepad and then use it.
Here is how you can add this functionality to Internet Explorer 7.
Open Notepad and paste the following code into it.
clip = window.clipboardData.getData(“Text”);
UrlArray = clip.split(“\n”);
for(i=0; i<=UrlArray.length; i++)
Save the file as as HTML file: C:\Windows\Web\Paste-n-Go.htm
Next open Regedit and browse to the following key:
Right-click the MenuExt key and select New > Key
Rename the newly created key to Paste && Go
Double click the (Default) entry on the Right Pane for this new key and set the value to the location where you saved the file you created ie: C:\Windows\Web\Paste-n-Go.htm
Right-click the right pane and create a new DWORD (32-bit) value. Rename the new key to Contexts and set its value to
1. Your registry should look something like this now.
Copy one or more urls URLs from Notepad or any other source:
Open a new Internet Explorer window and right-click anywhere in the content area and click Paste & Go from the context menu.
This will open the urls/s.
