More On Navigation
Just to remind you that the History option on Mosaic (found via
Navigate on the menu bar) or the Go option on Netscape allows
you to view the URLs of what you have accessed during your current WWW session.
URL Direct Access
You do not have to browse or search every single time in order to find the
document you want as long as you know its URL.
- Mosaic Users: click on the File option on the menu bar and
choose the option labelled Open URL. You will then be presented
with some options. Type a URL in the white box marked 'URL:' then press ENTER
or click on OK using the mouse. Otherwise cancel by clicking on
the Cancel button.
- Netscape Users: click on File and choose the option labelled
Open Location. Type a URL in the box marked 'Open Location:' then
press ENTER or click on OK using the mouse. Otherwise cancel by clicking
on the Cancel button.
Try this using the following URL http://www.cryst.bbk.ac.uk/ then
come back to this document using the History option.
There is a way to bookmark a URL on your local hard disk. This is done in
the following manner:
- Mosaic Users: Choose the 'Navigate' option on the menu bar and
select 'Add Current To Hotlist'
- Netscape Users:Choose the 'Bookmark' option on the menu bar and
select 'Add Bookmark'
This will add the URL to your Hotlist/Bookmarks (list of the user's useful
URLs) so that you can call a document up without having to write out the whole
URL next time - you simply choose the URL from the list.
Retrieving The Stored URLs
If you wish to return to a location you have stored in your
history/bookmarks, you can do the following:
- Mosaic Users: Choose the 'Navigate' option on the menu bar
and select the desired item from your Hotlist
- Netscape Users:Choose the 'Bookmark' option on the menu bar
and select the location from the list
