I need guidance for File Edit View Favorites Tool Help please?
Over the years, Microsoft has changed the interface of its Web browser, Internet Explorer. In earlier editions, Internet Explorer displayed a menu along the top of the screen containing the following menu items: File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tool, Help. Each menu item had its own list of functions that would become accessible when you clicked the menu item. For example, if you wanted to change your Internet options, you'd click Tools > Internet Options. If you wanted to add items to your Favorites, you'd click Favorites > Add to Favorites.
Today, the File-Edit-View-Favorites-Tool-Help items still exist. However, they aren't necessarily displayed in Internet Explorer. It depends on the settings you've selected. In an effort to provide users with more usable screen space, Microsoft allows users to control the display of the various bars that run along the top of the browser. You can turn these items on and off with just a few mouse-clicks.
The File-Edit-View-Favorites-Tool-Help items are stored in what's known as
the "menu bar." To toggle this display on or off, right-click a blank area
along the top of Internet Explorer and click on "Menu bar." If the menu bar
is selected for display, it will have a checkmark beside it. To stop
displaying the menu bar, remove the checkmark by clicking.
To learn more about the File-Edit-View-Favorites-Tool-Help menus, toggle the Menu bar on and explore each menu. You'll notice that many of the options contain shortcuts. For example, under File, the New Window command's shortcut is Control + N. If you use this command frequently, it's easier to press Control plus N than it is to toggle the menu bar on, click File, and click New Window. Some of the more common shortcuts are listed below:
- New Tab (Control + T), Open (Control + O), Print (Control + P)
Edit - Copy (Control + C), Paste (Control + V), Find on this page (Control + F)
View - Stop (Esc), Refresh (F5), Zoom in (Control +), Zoom out (Control -), Full screen (F11)
Favorites - There are no shortcuts for Favorites
Tools - Delete browsing history (Control+Shift+Delete), InPrivate Browsing (Control+Shift+P), View downloads (Control + J)
Help - Internet Explorer Help (F1)
As you become more comfortable using the shortcuts, you can hide the menu bar and enjoy a little extra screen space. You can always display it as needed by right-clicking a blank area along the top of Internet Explorer and choosing the menu bar.
