Browsing the Web
Internet Explorer 11 makes browsing online easy. In this lesson, we'll talk about navigating to websites using Internet Explorer. You'll also learn how to use tabs, access your browsing history, and view your downloads.
If you don't have a lot of experience with web browsers, you may want to review our lesson on Using a Web Browser, which covers the basic points of web browsing in more detail.
Some browsers use an address bar for navigating to websites and a search bar for conducting web searches. Internet Explorer 11 combines both of these functions into the address bar.
If you don't want the browser to suggest search terms as you type, click Turn off suggestions (stop sending keystrokes to Google).
Internet Explorer uses the Bing search engine by default. If you want to use a different search engine, like Google or Yahoo!, click the Add button. The Internet Explorer Gallery will open in a new tab. From here, you can add different search engines.
Internet Explorer uses four buttons for navigation: the Back, Forward, Refresh, and Home buttons.
