This may be helpful for people entering information for California.  My typing always has problems with selecting counties that begin with "San" and "Santa", as there are many.  So I simplified it.  After choosing "California", and when in the county field, now instead of having to type "San F" to get to "San Francisco", you can type "SF". Likewise for San Diego, San Benito, San Joaquin, San Luis Obispo (SL), San Mateo, and Santa Clara. It's not perfect as not all the letters are unique. Like for Santa Barbara, you can do "SB" which gets you to San Benito, and then scroll down to San Bernadino or Santa Barbara.

As a reminder, you can also do the same for states that being witih "New".  Typing an abbreviation like "NH" will select "New Hampshire", and likewise for New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, and New Brunswick in Canada.
