How to Turn Caret Browsing On or Off within Webpages

information   Information
Rather than just using a mouse pointer to select text and move around within a webpage, you can also use standard navigation keys Home, End, Page Up, Page Down, and the arrow keys on your keyboard instead of a mouse pointer. This feature is called Caret Browsing and is named after the caret (cursor) that appears when you edit a document. Holding the SHIFT key down and pressing the arrow keys selects text.

This tutorial will show you how to turn Caret Browsing on or off within webpages in your web browser (ex: IE9, IE10, or Firefox).





Here's How:
1. Open Internet Explorer or Firefox.
NOTE: In Windows 8, this would aply to both the IE10 desktop and IE10 Metro (Windows UI) versions.

2. To Turn On Caret Browsing
A) Press the F7 key, then click/tap on Yes. (see screenshots below)
