Going Back a Page


The Mouse

The mouse controls the movement of the arrow (or other) cursor on the screen. The hot spot of the mouse is the tip of the arrow; when you want to click on something, move the tip of the arrow over it, then click the mouse button (if your mouse has two buttons, usually it's the one on the left you'll press).


Links

The most important thing to remember about the web is that it is mostly a series of links. Some links lead to other pages, some lead to other parts of the same page. Spotting the links on a page is essential for surfing the web. Try clicking on lots of different places in the window to find links. Links are usually represented by:
Patience is a Virtue on the Web

Resizing the Window

Resize the window in order to see as much content as possible. To make your window larger:
Scrolling

Use scroll bars to see parts of a page that are out of sight. To scroll up or down in a page, either click on the up- or down-arrow on the right side of the window (to scroll a little at a time) or click in the gray bar at the right of the window (to scroll a window-full at a time). To scroll left or right on a page, either click on the left- or right-arrow on the bottom of the window (to scroll a little at a time) or click in the gray bar on the bottom of the window (to scroll a window-full at a time). If there aren't scroll bars visible, everything on the page fits in your window.
Going Back a Page

To go back a page, click on the "Back" button, which will contain a left-pointing arrow, the word "Back", or both.
