Windows 7: Keyboard shortcut for Taskbar's Address Toolbar

Keyboard shortcut for Taskbar's Address Toolbar

I'm trying to find out if there is a keyboard shortcut to move focus to the Address toolbar when it is added to the taskbar. (Again, this is the address bar in the taskbar, not the address bar in an explorer or browser window for which ALT+D is the shortcut.) I've searched Microsoft's list of Keyboard shortcuts, but did not find any information. And my Google searches have not found anything.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Windows 7 Address Bar Shortcut

I know this post is old but I was going crazy looking for this same deal, what I ended up doing was downloading autohotkey and writing a script that assigned one of my function keys (F1) to set the focus to the address bar.

F1::ControlFocus,ComboBox1,ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd

then i compiled the script and put it in my startup.

Hope this helps

Funnily enough I was trying to do this every thing the other day and was just having a looking to see if there was a better way I'd found both ComboBox1 and ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd parts but wasn't too sure on how to use them. I eventually settled with send keys [Win] B followed by [Shift] + [Tab]. However, I wanted to use the windows key and don't like having to use send keys. They only problem I found which may be my system is that your above code seems to highlight the address textbox but it won't actually let me type. Did you have the same issue? if so how did you get passed that?
