Navigating the Web

Just starting out on the Web? This tip is for you!

This tip will work with ANY online service or browser or operating system.  

When you are looking at your Internet screen,  do you see a long white box with an http:…. address in it?  This is called the browser address or location bar.  

  1. Click ONE time anywhere in the long white address bar toward the top of the screen (the current address will become highlighted)
  2. Type the address of the web page you are looking for (ex:   note that you do NOT have to type the http:// part of the address)
  3. Push ENTER or RETURN on your keyboard and you will be transported the address you typed.

That’s it! No more complicated than these three steps.  Just make sure that your spelling is correct, use periods instead of commas, and don’t use spaces.
