1.3 Getting the most out of websites

1.3.1 Favourite sites

When you are on a web page that you want to use again, you can ‘bookmark’ the address so that you can return to it easily.

To add a site to your Favorites (American spelling) list, click on Favorites > Add to Favorites. A small window will show with the name of the page. Click OK and the page is added to your list.

To go to a site on your Favorites list, click on Favorites, then click on the name of the page you want, or on a folder if you have organised your favourite sites. When you click on a folder, a list of pages in that folder will come up beside it. Click on the page you want and that page will load.
