Week 22 - Internet - Bookmarks/Favorites/Saving Websites to Disk

BOOKMARK
When you use the Internet you will find some great websites that you know you will want to return to again and again. When you do, you should “Bookmark ” it.

But, before we talk about bookmarks lets clarify how to get to a website in the first place. There are several ways, including:

1. You could go to the white band near the top of Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, etc.  (where it says “Netsite”, “Url”, “Location”, “Address”, or something like that) -- ours is http://www.stphilipneri.org


Click anywhere on the white band and it will turn blue. Then type the address you want to go to (ex: “www.cnn.com” is the web address -- or URL -- for CNN News) then hit the Enter key. You will be transferred to the website.

2. If you use a “search engine” (click on the “Search” button -- just below the white band where a web address appears) then you can either type in a word or phrase or click a category and continue to narrow down your choices until you find what you’re looking for.

3. Sometimes when you’re “surfing” or hit a site which has “links” to other sites of interest you’ll come across a website you know you will want to return to later.

In any case, when you hit a website you know you’ll want to return to, the best and easiest way to get back to that site -- tomorrow or next week or whenever -- is to bookmark it.

To make a bookmark:

1. Be on the page you want to bookmark.

2. Click on “Bookmarks” or 'Favorites (at the top of the screen just under the blue bar).

3. Click on “Add Bookmark” or 'Add to Favorites'.
 

That’s it -- couldn’t be easier.

Later on that day, tomorrow, or whenever you want to go back to that website just:

1. Click on “Bookmarks” or 'Favorites'.

2. Scroll down to the website on the list that you want to access and click.


If you don’t see the website on the initial list then either click on “Go to Bookmarks” (second on the list) or “More Bookmarks” (last on the list), scroll to the website you want,
and click.

Bookmarking saves you much time and typing. The ONLY drawback is that you’ll
probably go bookmark crazy (most people do) and end up with a huge list of bookmarks.  This is NO PROBLEM whatsoever.

As your list grows and becomes cumbersome simply review it and delete the old
bookmarks
that you know you won’t be using anymore. To do this:

1. Click on “Bookmarks” and scroll down to “Go to Bookmarks”, and click.

2. Scroll to the bookmark you want to get rid of.

3. Click the RIGHT mouse button. You’ll see a gray window pop up.

4. Scroll to 'Delete' and click (the usual left mouse button click).
That bookmark will
disappear from the list.
