Opening A New Web Page

If you know the URL (or address) of a new Web Page that you would like to visit, the easiest way to go there is by simply typing in the address into the "Location" field.

  1. Click your mouse in the "Location" bar.
  2. Type in the address of the Web Page you would like to visit (i.e. www.iwaynet.net) and press your "Enter" or "Return" key.

The History is a nice feature that stores every URL you visit (up to the number of days you have specified in preferences) for quick access. It also remembers the URLs so if you type an address that you've already visited it will automatically finish the address after entering a few letters of the URL. The History is easily accessible under the Navigator Menu Bar.
