1. Log on to a browser such as Netscape or Microsoft Explorer.
2. You may then type an address if it is known, for example (http://www.ect) and press enter. If the address is correct, it will take you directly to the website you are looking for.
3. If the address is not known, you must choose a search engine, provided by the browser, to help find an address. Some of the most common search engines are:
Yahoo Infoseek Lycos Hotbot Excite
Search engines are specialized. When you choose an engine, it will tell the kinds of information its designed to look for.
4. When you have chosen a search engine, you must then type in what you are looking for. You may begin your search with a general subject, and then get more specific if there is too much information.
For example: If you type in the word “basketball”, there will be thousands of entries. So you could then type N.B.A. Championship to be more specific.
