III. Windows Online > 11. Getting to the Web

Chapter 11. Getting to the Web

For millions of people, using the Internet is one of the most important functions of a PC. Few computer features have the potential to change your life as profoundly as the World Wide Web and email.

To join the Internet party already in progress, you need three components: a connection, such as a modem, cable modem, DSL, or corporate network; an Internet account; and Internet software, such as a Web browser or email program. This chapter guides you through setting up your computer for Internet access, and then shows you how to use Internet Explorer to find your way around the Web.

Note

Microsoft constantly improves and updates Internet Explorer. Windows 2000 comes with version 5.01, but that version has been succeeded by Internet Explorer 5.5 (or an even later version). Use the Windows Update tool (see Section 3.11) to upgrade your version to the latest available.
