Accessing the internet

Start up the computer (if it is turned off) (See flash card 1)

  1. As a first step you will need to move your mouse cursor with your mouse until it moves over the bottom left corner.

  2. This is called the start button

  3. Now you need to left click the START button in the bottom left corner of your screen.

  4. This will bring up a list of all your programs.

  5. The next step is to click on internet at the top of the list.

  6. Your default browser will then open.

There are different web browsers available but all generally work the same. So if it is a browser you have not seen before, please do not worry.

  1. The next thing you need to do is visit the webpage you are looking for.

  2. If you know the webpage address you are wanting to visit go into the address bar and enter the address into the blank space then press enter.

  3. If you don’t know the address I suggest going to www.google.com and typing what you are looking for.

  4. You are now on the internet.

  5. Repeat these steps a couple of times so you familiarise yourself with the route taken.

  6. Now you will need to think about what it is you want to visit in the future.
