With Learn the Net, as with most websites, your starting point is called the home page. You can always return to it by clicking the logo. Why not give it a try to see what happens?
Navigating the Site
Along the left side of each page, you'll find a list of subjects. Just click a subject for a list of related articles. Then click the title to read the article. The diagram to the left shows how the site is structured.
Throughout Learn the Net--in fact on most web pages--you will see words that are in color, usually blue, and often underlined. By clicking these words, known as hypertext, you jump to other places on the page, to other pages on the site, or to other resources on the Internet.
You can also click certain graphics, called hyperlinks, to access other resources. How do you know which images link to other content? Watch your pointer. When it rolls over hypertext or a hyperlinked graphic, the cursor changes from an arrow to a hand. Give it a try with the logo above.
When you click a link to content not associated with Learn the Net, it will open in a new browser window.
That way, you can easily return to the Learn the Net article you were reading. When you're finished with the new page, close the window by clicking the X in the upper right corner.
You may notice that some words have double green underlines. When you place your cursor over these keywords, a small box pops up with links to subject-related websites. These sponsored links may interest you. If so, click on either the green underlined word or the pop-up box to visit the advertiser's website.
Whether you are on Learn the Net or another site, you can always return to the previous page by clicking on the Back button on your browser toolbar.
Another way to do this is by clicking the page once with your right mouse button. Then select Back from the pop-up menu.
To locate specific information, use the Search Box. There's one in the upper left corner of each page and in the lower blue bar. Type in keywords for what you're looking for, then click the Search button.
Now that you can navigate your way through the site, give it a go. If you encounter any problems or have comments or suggestions, please e-mail us or post your thoughts on our Facebook page. We're always glad to hear from you.
