How to Visit a Website on Your Samsung Galaxy Tablet

By Dan Gookin

To visit a web page on your Samsung Galaxy tablet, type its address into the Address box. You can also type a search word or phrase if you don’t know an exact web page address. Touch the Go button on the onscreen keyboard to search the web or visit a specific web page.

If you don’t see the Address box, touch the web page’s tab atop the screen. The Address box, along with the various buttons left and right, appears on the screen.

You “click” links on a page by touching them with your finger. If you have trouble stabbing the right link, zoom in on the page and try again.

  • When typing a web page address, use the onscreen keyboard’s www. key to instantly type those characters for the address. The www. key changes to the .com key to assist you in rapidly typing those characters as well.

  • To reload a web page, touch the Refresh symbol on the left end of the Address bar.

  • To stop a web page from loading, touch the X that appears to the left of the Address bar. The X replaces the Refresh button and appears only when a web page is loading.

  • The Refresh icon may change to a menu icon (see the margin) as you type in the Address bar. Touch that icon to choose a search engine to use when looking up information.
