New Contact Created New Company Automatically

I just created a new contact and when the company information was put in, the company field turned blue and underlned.  After saving, I clicked on the company and it was there in the Companies view.

 

I then to go fast sometimes and could have hit a key or a comination of keys inadvertently, but I wasn't aware that a new contact can be set to create a new company automatically - other than selecting the function under contact.

 

Is this a feature I have skipped all these years or does anyone have any idea.

Re: New Contact Created New Company Automatically

There isn't an option within the program to create new Companies when new contacts are created - there is an option to automatically link to existing Company when creating a new contact. 

 

Are you able to reproduce this behavior?

Re: New Contact Created New Company Automatically

Since I am primarily a keyboarder instead of using the mouse, I tend to type ahead fast.  So, to answer your question, I'm not even sure how it happened or what key strokes I made.  If it happens again, I'll re-post.  For now I appreciate your response.
