Part 13. Navigating the Web > Task 2 How to Navigate Between Pages

Task 2 How to Navigate Between Pages

Part of “surfing the Web” is going from one page to another. Although you can always enter a new Web address, more often you'll find new pages by following the links from one page to another. These links are similar to the URL link hotspots you created in Part 12, “Enhancing Documents.”

1.
Identify a Link

On a Web page, you often see text that is blue and underlined. That's a link to another page. However, not all link text is blue and underlined; pictures can also serve as link hotspots. When you point at these links, the mouse pointer becomes a small hand and the URL address to which the link takes you appears in the status bar.

2.
Link to Another Page

To go to the page identified by the link text, click the text. After a short pause, the new page appears in your browser window.

3.
Go to a Previous Page

To return to a page you just visited, click the Go Back button on the Navigation toolbar as many times as necessary to reach the page (the Go Back button is dimmed if you have no page to go back to). Alternatively, click the down arrow next to the Go Back button to see a history of the sites you've visited in this session—including documents, view, and databases in Notes! Select the site you want to view.

4.
Go to the Next Page

After you've gone backward, click the Go Forward button on the Navigation toolbar to go to the next page you visited after the one currently showing (the Go Forward button is dimmed if you have no page to go forward to). Alternatively, click the down arrow next to the Go Forward button and select a site from the history list of sites you've visited.

5.
Create a Favorite

You might have found a particular site you want to visit frequently. What you need is a bookmark for that site, and the best place to put it is in your Favorite Bookmarks folder. Right-click the window tab that contains the page title, and then select Create Bookmark from the context menu that appears. In the Add Bookmark dialog box, enter a Name for the bookmark, select Favorite Bookmarks from the Add to box, and then click OK.

6.
Open a Favorite Page

Later, when you want to revisit a favorite page, click the Favorite Bookmarks folder icon to open the bookmark pane. Then click the bookmark to open the page. If you aren't currently connected to the Internet, a stored copy of the page might open or you might get a message that the page is not found.

7.
Use History

In the History bookmark folder are bookmarks for all the documents, views, databases, and Web pages you visited today. The most recent item is at the bottom of the Today list; other folders contain bookmarks for yesterday and previous dates. You can sort the bookmarks by site, title, or date by clicking Sort. After you locate the bookmark you want, click it to visit that item or page.
