While viewing a web page, open Internet Options and press the “Use Current” button. Many web sites have this option available on their main page too.

When you return to those pages, the computer might be able to access the site faster based on the information it gathered on the prior visit.You have the option to remove those files. Just click the “Delete Files” button. This helps prevent others from finding out which pages you have visited.

  36. The History section of this tab controls how long links to pages you have visited are kept. You can change the number of days those lists are kept or delete the list. This also helps prevent others from learning which sites you have visited.

  44. Address Bar Type the URL or your search terms here.

  45. Directly below the navigation buttons is the address bar.This is where you type the address of the website you would like to view or the terms for which you would like to search.

  46. Remember to type your web address carefully. The computer matches what you type. If you make an error or leave spaces, the computer will not know where to go.“\”, “_”, “-” and “@” are all important parts of an address.

  47. = commercial = organization’s = government = educational institution’s site.

  48. We will now look at scrolling. Scrolling is how you move your field of vision around a page. Often the information on a web page is larger than your screen. Scrolling up or down will move you to other parts of the page.
