How to Save a Page Location for Future Reference

"Always obey your superiors—if you have any."
—Mark Twain

Willie W. Webfoot on saving a site

Each browser offers you different options on saving a location for future surfing adventures. Whenever you come across a page that you'd like to surf again, follow the instructions below and you'll be able to easily save the address.

Some browsers also allow you to decide which page you'd like to see when you open your browser. If you are new to the Internet, you may want to set up the Helpweb as your homepage for the time being while you begin to explore the fascinating world of cyberspace.
