Bookmarking web pages for later



When you are browsing the web and find a site that you like you may want to save a link to it so you can easily find it again at a later date. Almost all web browsers have the ability to save bookmarks or favorites, collections of links that you can get to from clicking in the browser's menus.



In Internet Explorer (version 3 or 4) you can access this feature by going to the Favorites menu at the top of the window. To save the location of the web site you are currently viewing to this list you click on Add to Favorites.



Netscape Navigator saves the site addresses in the Bookmarks menu. This is located at the top of the window in version 3, and on the toolbar in version 4. To save the page you are currently looking at to this menu you choose Add Bookmark.



To delete a saved link in Internet Explorer, go to the Favorites menu and choose Organize Favorites. Click on the link you wish to delete, and click the Delete button.



To delete a bookmark in Netscape Navigator, go to the Bookmarks menu and choose Edit Bookmarks. Click on the bookmark you wish to delete with your right mouse button and select Delete Bookmark.



Both browsers have the ability to do more with a bookmark or favorite than just save and delete it, including being able to sort your collected sites into folders or searching for a specific entry. More information about the tasks that your specific browser can perform is located in its help topics by clicking on the Help menu at the top of the window.
