  5. Finding, Saving, and Returning to Web Sites 255 Printing Web Pages While you’re browsing the Web, Internet Explorer makes it easy to print the Web page you’re viewing, either on paper or to a file .

From the Print Preview window, you can change the page orientation and adjust the print settings . l To change the print settings without first previewing the page, click Page Setup in the Print list .

  6. 256 Chapter 7 Work with Web Pages and Sites Sending Web Pages and Links Sharing information from Web pages can be very useful—for example, when you are researching information (such as travel plans) on behalf of a group, or if you come across an article that you know would be of interest to a co-worker, friend, or family member . If you have an e-mail program installed on your computer, you can share the information directly from Internet Explorer in two ways: l You can send a copy of the page embedded in an e-mail message . (If you want to keep a copy of the page handy in an easily accessible electronic format, you can send it to yourself .) Links from the page you send remain active in the e-mail message . l You can send the page URL in a plain-text message . Message recipients using e-mail programs that support active content can click the URL to display the Web page in a browser window . Recipients using e-mail programs that don’t support active content can copy the URL and paste it into a browser to display the page . Troubleshooting These options are available only when working in an e-mail program that is installed on your computer; not when working in a Web mail program that runs inside an Internet Explorer window. If you have a Windows Live Hotmail account, you also have the option of sending the Web page or link through that account . To do so, click E-mail With Windows Live on the Page menu . This option opens Windows Live Hotmail on a separate tab of the same Internet Explorer window . Internet Explorer protects your account from use by other people by requiring that you first log in to your account . See Also For information about setting the default e-mail program for Internet services, see the sidebar “Setting the Default E-Mail Program” in Chapter 8, “Manage Internet Explorer.” In this exercise, you’ll first send an e-mail message with an embedded Web page, and then send another message with a link to a Web page . SET UP You don’t need any practice files to complete this exercise, but you do need to have an e-mail program installed on your computer, and an account configured in that program. Start your default e-mail program and log on to your e-mail account if necessary. Then start Internet Explorer and follow the steps. 1. Display any Web site in the Internet Explorer window . 2. On the Command bar, click the Page button . Please purchase PDF Split-Merge on www.verypdf.com to remove this watermark.
  7. Sending Web Pages and Links 257 The Page menu displays a list of actions you can perform with the current Web page . Some commands on the Page menu are active only when content is selected. 3. On the Page menu, click Send Page by E-mail . An Internet Explorer Security dialog box opens, requesting permission to display the page content in an e-mail message . 4. In the Internet Explorer Security message box, click Allow . A new HTML e-mail message opens in your default e-mail program . Please purchase PDF Split-Merge on www.verypdf.com to remove this watermark.
  8. 258 Chapter 7 Work with Web Pages and Sites The Web page title becomes the message subject Graphics are embedded Formatting supported by the e-mail program is retained Formatting not supported by the e-mail program is discarded The contents of the currently displayed page are embedded in the message as individual HTML and graphic elements. You can select any text or graphic in the embedded page and work with it as you would work with other e-mail message content . 5. Address the e-mail message to yourself, and then send it . (Or if you prefer, close the message window without sending the message .) You can work with the message you receive as you would with any other—you can view it, delete it, save it for later reference, or forward it to someone else . Please purchase PDF Split-Merge on www.verypdf.com to remove this watermark.
  9. Key Points 259 6. On the Page menu, click Send Link by E-mail . A new plain-text e-mail message opens . Notice the variation in the message subject . The name of the current Web page is the message subject, and the page URL appears in the Content pane. 7. Address the e-mail message to yourself, and then send it . (Or, if you prefer, close the message window without sending the message .) CLEAN UP Close the Internet Explorer window. Key Points l Accelerators are add-ons to Internet Explorer that let you quickly perform content- related tasks directly from a Web page . l You can receive information from Web sites and blogs that interest you by sub- scribing to their RSS feeds . Web Slices are a type of feed that alert you to updated information . l You can search the Web for information by entering general or specific search terms in the Search box . You may choose whatever search provider you want . l The Favorites Center keeps track of sites you save, feeds you subscribe to, and your Internet browsing history .

  11. 8 Manage Internet Explorer In this chapter, you will learn how to 4 Personalize Internet Explorer 8 . 4 Block pop-up windows . 4 Configure Internet security zones . 4 Restrict objectionable content . If you frequently visit specific Web sites, you might find it a convenient time-saver to have Windows Internet Explorer 8 automatically display those pages for you when you start the program . If you have trouble viewing information on Web pages, you can con- trol the appearance of the information, including the default font, font size, and color used on Web pages that don’t specify those settings . In addition to these cosmetic changes, you can control many security-related settings, to reassure yourself that you (or your family members) will not have unpleasant experiences when browsing the Internet . You can specify whether programs may open secondary Internet Explorer program windows, as well as explicitly prevent the display of content you consider offensive . In this chapter, you’ll learn how to specify one or more Web pages to open automatically when you start Internet Explorer and how to change the appearance of the Web content that appears within the Internet Explorer program window . Then you’ll learn several techniques and settings for protecting your computer from malicious content distributed over the Internet . Finally, you’ll learn how to prevent the display of specific types of con- tent during Web browsing sessions . Practice Files You won’t need any practice files to complete the exercises in this chapter. See “Using the Practice Files” at the beginning of this book for more information. 261 Please purchase PDF Split-Merge on www.verypdf.com to remove this watermark.
  12. 262 Chapter 8 Manage Internet Explorer Personalizing Internet Explorer 8 As with so many Windows 7 elements, you can personalize Internet Explorer to display the content you want in the way you want . See Also For information about displaying and hiding Internet Explorer toolbars, see “Displaying Web Sites” in Chapter 6, “Connect to the Web.” Changing Your Home Page Each time you open a new Internet Explorer window by clicking the Internet Explorer button or command rather than a link to a specific Web site or page, the browser win- dow opens and displays your home page . This is usually the main page of a site you visit often, such as MSN for general information, your company’s home page for internal news, or a financial Web site for tracking your investments . You can display more than one home page—for example, if you look at three news sites each morning, you can set all three as home pages so that they open automatically on three tabs of the browser window when you start Internet Explorer . Or if you prefer to avoid the distraction of a commercial site, you can select a blank page as your home page and display a specific Web site only when you choose to visit one . Changing the Appearance of Web Content Some Web sites set the formatting, such as fonts, font sizes, and text and background colors, used in their pages in order to control the way the site looks on your screen . Others don’t . In the latter case, you can change the appearance of content displayed in the Internet Explorer window by changing the formatting . You might make these changes for personal preference or for readability if, for example, you have trouble distinguishing certain colors or find it difficult to read small text on a computer monitor . To change the size of the text on Web pages that don’t specifically set the text size: l On the Internet Explorer Page menu, click Text Size, and then click the size you want: Smallest, Smaller, Medium (the default), Larger, or Largest . Tip To magnify everything in the Internet Explorer window, click the Change Zoom Level button in the lower-right corner of the window, and then click the zoom level you want. Keyboard Shortcut You can increase the zoom level of the Internet Explorer window in 25%, increments up to a maximum of 1000%, by pressing Ctrl+Plus Sign (+). You can decrease the zoom level in 25% increments, to a minimum of 10%, by pressing Ctrl+Minus Sign (–). Please purchase PDF Split-Merge on www.verypdf.com to remove this watermark.

  18. 268 Chapter 8 Manage Internet Explorer Setting the Default E-Mail Program Often you will find information on the Internet that you want to share with others . One way to do this is to send a Web page or link directly from Internet Explorer, by clicking Send Page By E-mail or Send Link By E-mail on the Internet Explorer Page menu . To send a Web page or link from Internet Explorer, you must first have installed and configured an e-mail program . You might use more than one e-mail program on your computer—for example, you might use Microsoft Outlook to connect to your work e-mail account and Windows Live Mail to connect to your personal e-mail account . Internet Explorer will automatically open a message in the e-mail program that is set as your default . You can change the e-mail program that Internet Explorer uses, from the Internet Options dialog box . On the Programs tab of the Internet Options dialog box, you can specify which HTML edit- ing and Internet programs you want to work with.

  19. Blocking Pop-Up Windows 269 Blocking Pop-Up Windows Pop-up windows (or just pop-ups) are secondary Web browser windows that open in front of (or sometimes behind) the window you’re working in when you display a Web site or click an advertising link . The content of these windows might be informational— for example, a new window might open when you click a link for more information or when you log on to a secure site—or in some cases might be irritating or malicious—for example, when browsing the Web for information you might come across display a page that causes several advertisements to pop up behind it . However, pop-ups frequently display annoying advertisements, adware (fake warning messages containing links to product sites), spyware (malicious software that can collect personal information from your computer), or other types of content you did not invite and probably don’t want . You can use the Internet Explorer Pop-up Blocker to prevent the display of unwanted pop-ups . The Pop-up Blocker is turned on by default . When a pop-up tries to open, an audio alert sounds, and the Information bar appears at the top of the Internet Explorer Content pane, notifying you that a pop-up has been blocked . Information bar Site-specific notification Some sites display a notification when the Information bar appears. Please purchase PDF Split-Merge on www.verypdf.com to remove this watermark.
  20. 270 Chapter 8 Manage Internet Explorer You can configure pop-up settings for the currently displayed site by clicking the Information bar and then clicking the option you want . Click the Information bar to display the site-specific Pop-up Blocker settings. When a pop-up is blocked, you have the following options: l You can ignore the Information bar and not display the pop-up . l You can allow pop-ups from the site you’re displaying, for the duration of the current browsing session . l You can allow pop-ups from the site you’re displaying, for this and all future browsing sessions . To turn off the Pop-up Blocker and allow all pop-ups from all sites: l On the Tools menu, click Pop-up Blocker, and then click Turn Off Pop-up Blocker . Important Unless you visit only Web sites you know to be safe, turning off the Pop-up Blocker entirely is not a good idea, because it exposes your computer to the risk of infection by malware. You can allow all pop-ups from a specific site to open by adding the site to either the Pop-up Blocker list of allowed Web sites or your Trusted Sites list . To modify Pop-up Blocker settings: 1. On the Internet Explorer Tools menu, click Pop-up Blocker, and then click Pop-up Blocker Settings; or click Settings on the Information bar menu and then click More Settings . The Pop-up Blocker Settings dialog box opens . Please purchase PDF Split-Merge on www.verypdf.com to remove this watermark.
