Browser Buttons
As you can see below each browser type (i.e., Netscape and Microsoft Internet Explorer) has its own navigational system that consists of buttons usually located in the top section of your screen. These buttons will be very important for navigating through the course. They will take you to the previous page that you were on and forward to the page you came from, as well as help you scroll up and down and across the screen. The scroll bar on the right of your screen lets you know where you are on the page. If the bar is in the middle it indicates that you are in the middle of the page.
