SAFARI WEB BROWSER INSTRUCTIONS
1) Type the web address without any spaces and with all lower-case letters in the Address Box, then press the Return key on the keyboard, for example:
Tip: To save time, you can just type the unique part of the web site address, such as nytimes in the Address Box, then hold down the Ctrl key on the keyboard and press the Return key. The computer will automatically add the “http://www.” and “.com” parts and take you to that web site.
2) Wait a few moments for the blue “progress” bar to go all the way across in the same Address Box where you typed the web site address.
3) When you arrive at the web site, you can click on any blue, underlined text to go to another web page (this is called a “link”).
4) To return to the first page (the home page), click on the Back button at the upper left-hand corner of the screen, or you can click on the Home link if such a link appears on the page anywhere.
5) There are usually buttons at the top, bottom and/or left side of most web pages that allow you to go to different parts of the web site.
6) To close Safari, click on the word, “Safari” at the upper left-hand corner of the screen, then click on Quit Safari. (The red button in the upper left-hand corner of the Safari window just closes the web browser window; it doesn’t close the Safari program itself. This is true for many other Mac programs.)
CHANGING YOUR HOME PAGE (SAFARI):
1) Double-click on the Safari icon on the Desktop, or single-click on the Safari button on the Dock. (It has a picture of a compass on it.)
2) Click on Safari at the upper left-hand corner of the window.
3) Click on Preferences.
4) Type the home page address you want, such as http://www.nytimes.com in the Home page: box.
5) Close the window by clicking on the Red button in the upper left-hand corner of the window.
