Before We Get Started…

  • Please turn your cell phone to stun!

  • Rest rooms are down the hall, on the right.

  • We’ll take a 5 minute break at 11:00 a.m.

  • Please hold questions about your own computer for the question and answer period at the end.




Default
Default

  • How it comes from the manufacturer

  • What it does if you don’t make any changes

  • Examples:

  • Speedometers in US: MPH main measure.

  • In Canada: KPH is main measure.

  • Email addresses – more than one – one of them will be the default.

  • Printers – more than one printer – one of them will be the default.


Browser

  • Software which interprets webpage instructions into a user-friendly page

    • Internet Explorer

    • FireFox

Favorites and bookmarks
Favorites and bookmarks

  • Favorites and bookmarks – the terms are interchangeable.

  • Bookmark can be a noun or a verb, e.g., “to bookmark a site” means “to mark the site so that you don’t have to type it in again the next time you go there. As a noun, a site saved for later is a bookmark. The word favorite is only a noun: a site saved for later is a favorite. Bookmarks and favorites are time-savers so that you don’t have to retype a website address all the time.


Address bar vs search bar
Address bar vs. search bar

  • When you know the URL of the site you want to visit and you don’t have it bookmarked, you should type the address in the address bar.

  • When you have no idea of the URL of a site you want to visit, you should use the search bar.

  • Don’t type http: or www. in the search bar.
