  • How can I send "Home" key to Internet Explorer

    I have been playing with the keys function and can get it to work fine with with a program like calculator which always has the same window title.
    How can I do that with Internet Explorer as the window title changes with each website it visits?
    I want to be able to bring my kitchen laptop PC back to the Home page at a given time.

      Never mind, I figured out how to do what I wanted.
      Let me explain further...
      I have a laptop in the kitchen that serves as my HA access for the wife. It normally has an IE webpage up, but when someone rings the doorbell I have message server load up a webpage showing the cameras I have watching the front and back door so we can see who rang the doorbell. If that page stays up indefinitely the program serving it up (VisionGS) sucks up more and more memory. I finally remembered that the screen it puts up does always have the same name, so I am able to use Message Server to send an Alt-Home key to bring the page back to my normal home page.
      I was trying to solve the problem looking at generic IE webpages while forgetting that the one I want to close does always have the same name.
