    FINALLY WORKS! You can directly go to websites in Chrome with 1 word!


    I was hitting my head against the wall, trying to figure this out. Thought I might tell you guys because this forum has been so helpful to me in the past. :)

    In the url box in Chrome, if you type just Amazon, it will directly go to https://www.amazon.com if you go to Settings, Manage Search Engines and type in Amazon into the key word.

    What my problem was I couldn't replicate stuff like Google Calendar. Instead, it would take me to Google search results for Google Calendar.

    I finally realized that the key word has to be ONE WORD and then it will go directly into Google Calendar. You also have to erase all the search stuff after the url. For example, the address has to be YouTube instead of https://youtube.com/CRAPSEARCHSTUFF

    Please enjoy this productivity hint that took me hours to figure out.
