Task 3: Typing an Address



Click in the Address bar. Type the address of the site you want to visit, and then press Enter.


Internet Explorer displays the page for that address.


Typing a site's address is the fastest way to get to that site. An address, or URL (uniform resource locator), consists of the protocol (usually http://) www, and the domain name (something like nba.com). The domain name might also include a path (a list of folders) to the document. The extension (usually .com, .net, .gov, .edu, or .mil) indicates the type of site (commercial, network resources, government, educational, or military, respectively).


Address Bar

If the Address Bar is not displayed, click View, Toolbars, Address Bar.

Use AutoComplete

If you have typed a specific address before, you can type only its first few letters; Internet Explorer will display the rest.
