Internet Explorer / IE >> is there an ie7 "open current in new tab"?

I like the old Ctrl+N, which opens a new window with the contents of the
current window duplicated in it. I used to do this mainly when a link would
open up in an existing window and become the new current page... I could do
this and then go "back" in the original window to get to the original page.
It still works and I still do this.

I like the new Ctrl+T, which opens a new blank tab in the current ie window.
It's great.

Is there a way to open a new tab with the same contents as the current
window? I'd like to do this to accomplish that first task I mentioned
above.

I know... give me something and I'll ask for something more.

Thanks,
Jim

It's a two-step shortcut...
Alt+d then Alt+enter
(Thanks to Robert Aldwinckle for this tip)

Hope this helps,

Internet Explorer / IE >> is there an ie7 "open current in new tab"?
wow!

stunning, and cool. thank you.

ok, I completely understand the Alt+d part... no big deal... that is meant
to take you to the address bar, and I knew that for some reason. I don't
remember why I knew that. F4 is related, but displays the dropdown.

but where did he come up with Alt+enter?? Here's my guess:
from ie7, the Help menu, then Contents and Index, then, under Getting
started with Internet Explorer, then, Tabbed browing: frequently asked
questions, then:
What mouse and keyboard shortcuts can I use when working with tabs?
Alt+Enter is listed in there. I guess when it says, "Open a new tab in the
foreground from the Address bar", that's the clue to do the Alt+d first. I
never figured that out before. If you do the Alt+Enter without the Alt+d
first, the result is not at all what I wanted.

Anyway, thanks! this is now in my repertoire.

I'm a big fan of shortcuts. The guy in the split of this thread showed a
great Quick Reference Sheet that I didn't know about. Thanks to both of
you.
