Some Basics About Browsing

This is a list of reminders about really helpful things that I might forget if I don't have a reminder.

from Bill Parke: To archive pages and linked objects from a Web site onto your home computer, follow these steps:

  1. Using Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 or 5, navigate to the top-level page you want to save.
  2. Decide how many levels below the current page you want to save.
  3. Choose the Favorites|Add to Favorites... menu item. (From here on, the steps describe IE 5 -- IE 4 dialogs are a little different but accomplish the same thing.)
  4. Check the box next to "Make available offline". The Customize button is now enabled.
  5. Click the Create In button and choose a folder in which to save your Web page archive.
  6. Click the Customize button and follow through the setup dialogs to specify how many page-levels to save and whether to synchronize (update) the archived pages later.
  7. Click OK to begin automatic downloading and saving the Web pages and linked items.
PS Did you see the article in PC Magazine, April 18, p. 50, "Setting up an E-Shop"?
