Entering a URL in the Address Bar
to read, and it identifi es the realm in which the server or computer resides. Some URLs
include a fi lename after the domain name. If a URL does not include a fi lename, many
Web browsers will load the fi le that provides an index-like display of options on the Web
site’s home page—for example, index.htm or default.aspx.
Entering a URL in the Address Bar
To navigate to different Web pages, you can click the links on a Web page; or to display
a specifi c Web page, you can enter its URL in the Address bar. In most cases, URLs are
not case-sensitive; however, if you are entering a URL that includes mixed cases, it is
safer to retain the mixed-case format of the URL. To continue your research, you’ll check
out tourism in Pennsylvania.
To open and navigate Web pages about tourism:
1. Click the Address box on the Address bar to select the current URL. Anything you
type will replace the selected URL.
Trouble? If the entire contents of the Address box are not selected, drag to
select the entire address.
2. Type in the Address box.
3. Press the Enter key (or click the Go to arrow ). Internet Explorer adds http:// to
the URL, and then displays the page in the browser window. The name of the Web
page appears on the tab and in the title bar. The amount of time required to display
a Web page fully depends on the amount of text and graphics on the Web page,
the speed of your Internet connection, and the amount of traffic on the Internet.
Next, you’ll check out some Web pages on the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors site.
4. Point to the Places To Stay tab, and then click Bed & Breakfasts .
5. Scroll down the Bed & Breakfasts page, and then click the link to one of the B&Bs.
Trouble? If no images appear on the Web page, pop-ups might be blocked on
your computer. Click the Pop-up blocked message at the top of the browser
window to enable the display of pop-ups (always or temporarily), or click Tools on the
Command bar, point to Pop-up Blocker, click Pop-up Blocker Settings, and then
change the Blocking level to allow pop-ups from secure Web sites.
6. Check out the different links available on the Web site using the Back
Forward buttons
to move between Web pages.
7. Click the Recent Pages button on the Address bar to view the list of recent
pages you just navigated, and then click the necessary link to return to the PA
Great Outdoors Visitors Bureau home page.
Tabbed Browsing
Tabbed browsing lets you display multiple Web pages in the same browser window.
With tabbed browsing, you can create a tab for each Web page you visit that you might
want to return to quickly. Using tabs instead of the list of recently visited pages can make
your browsing experience more effi cient. Using the Quick Tabs button, you can view
thumbnail images (which are miniature pictures) of all open tabs in a single view. You
can close a tab for a Web page that no longer interests you in a thumbnail view or in the
browser window view by clicking its Close Tab button.
