Class 3.07: Navigating Websites

Navigating websites requires many of the skills we practiced in Part 1: Using the Mouse.

Hyperlinks can be detected in a web page when the cursor changes from an arrow to a pointing finger.

Hyperlinks or Links can be text, buttons, graphics or photos. When the cursor arrow turns into a hand, click with the left mouse button to go to another web page or to another area of information within a website.

Practice: Try the four links below by clicking on each one, one at a time.

Text Link

Button Link

Graphic link

Photo Link

Many websites also use menus to display links to many different pages. One example of a menu can be found in the purple bar at the top of this web page. This menu is a dropdown menu – it only appears when the cursor interacts with it.

Practice: Practice using menus be navigating to the next page using the Classes menu at the top of the page.
