Starting Microsoft Internet Explorer
Microsoft Internet Explorer is the Web browser that installs with Windows 9x, Windows 2000,
and Windows XP. It provides all the tools you need to communicate, access, and share infor-
mation on the Web. Your first step in helping Susan find information about other B&Bs is to
start Internet Explorer.
To start Internet Explorer:
1. Click the Start button on the taskbar, point to All Programs , and then click Internet
Explorer . The Internet Explorer program window opens.
Trouble? This tutorial assumes that you have Internet Explorer 6 or later installed on your
computer. If you are using another Web browser, ask your instructor or technical support
person for assistance or program-specific instructions.
Trouble? If you cannot find Internet Explorer on the All Programs menu, check to see if
an Internet Explorer shortcut icon appears on the desktop, and then double-click it. If you
do not see the shortcut icon, ask your instructor or technical support person for help. The
program might be installed in a different folder on your computer.
Trouble? If a Dial-up Connection dialog box opens, enter your user name and password
into the appropriate text boxes, and then click the Connect button. If you do not know your
user name or password, ask your instructor or technical support person for assistance; you
must have an Internet connection to complete the steps in this tutorial. After a connection
is made, continue with Step 2.
2. If the program window does not fill the screen entirely, click the Maximize button on
the Internet Explorer title bar. Your screen should look similar to the one shown in Figure 4.
