To make browsing the internet easy, you can use the tabs in your web browser. Tabs allow you to have several web pages open at once and easily switch among them.

1

With Desktop Internet Explorer open, click New Tab.

New Tab is the smallest, blank tab on the far right side of the tabs.

2

When the new tab appears, your most frequently visited sites are displayed. You can click on a frequent site, or enter a URL in the Address bar and press Enter.

The website opens in that tab. You can then click other tabs to switch among open sites.

3

You can return to a page by clicking that page's tab, thumbnail, or name in the drop-down list that you display by clicking the arrow in the Address bar.

You will return to the selected page.

4

Close an active tab by clicking the Close button on the right side of the tab.

If you use the Start Screen version of IE, right-click and then click the Add button (with a + mark in a circle) at the bottom of the screen to add a tab. The black area at the bottom of the screen shows any currently open tabs and you can enter a new URL to add a tab.

You can also press Ctrl+T to open a new tab in either version of Internet Explorer. Also, if you want to keep one tab open and close all others, right-click the tab you want to keep open and choose Close Other Tabs.
