Part 15. Advanced Office and Web Feature... > Surfing the Web with the Web Toolbar

Surfing the Web with the Web Toolbar

In any Office application, open the View menu and select Toolbars, Web to open the Web toolbar.

Click the down arrow next to the Address field to see Office documents and Web pages you have visited recently. If desired, click an entry in the list to visit that page.

To view your Internet start page, click the Start Page button on the Web toolbar.

Office launches a new default browser window, with your start page displayed. Click the window's Close button to return to the original Office document.

INTRODUCTION

Suppose you are working on a document and need to search for data pertaining to what you are writing about. Instead of opening your Web browser, you can simply use the Web toolbar in your Office application. You can use the Web toolbar in Office applications to open documents on the Internet; browse Web documents; jump to other documents, objects, or pages using hyperlinks; or even share your documents on the Web. If you have ever used a Web browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator), this toolbar should look familiar. Keep in mind that you need to be connected to the Internet for this task; otherwise, Office will try to connect you after you use the Web toolbar buttons.


TIP

Searching the Web

Some of the best Web sites to search for information are www.yahoo.com, www.google.com, and www.excite.com.


To search the Web for information about a particular topic, click the Search the Web button on the Web toolbar.

Office launches a new default browser window with a search engine page displayed; conduct your search as normal. When finished, click the window's Close button.

If you know the Internet address (URL) you want to visit, click the down arrow next to the Go button on the Web toolbar and select Open Hyperlink.

The Open Internet Address dialog box opens. In the Address field, type the URL you want to visit and press Enter; your default browser opens and displays the page.
