Take Advantage of Multiple Windows When Surfing

SUMMARY: Stop jumping back and forth between index pages by using several browser windows.

Why use one web browser window when you can have multiple? If you have an adequate amount of memory, open up several web browsers to maximize your surfing experience.

One great way to do this is via a start page. Select a page from where you would like to begin browsing, such as a table of contents or links page. Now, instead of left-clicking on links or entries to view other pages, right-click the links. From the pop-up menu that appears, look for something like "Open in New Window" or "Browse in New Window." This starts up another web browser window with the link you selected, keeping the original page on the screen.

Return to the Internet page.
