By Sahra Ali

Level 1 Business Administration Presentation

Introduction
Demonstration on how to use browser tools in the search
engine, to navigate web pages. The steps that I write in this
presentation should be simple and followed clearly. Many of
the instructions, which demonstrate how to use certain
tools are the same and should be understood clearly. There
are many screenshots that I think will try to help me
visualise what I am learning and will help me try to do the
demonstration by myself.

submenu is pulled down that has
a variety of options. Actions that

Conclusion
I should be able to now know how to use tool browsers to
navigate through web pages by following the steps I have
given myself. I have tried to make the steps easy and clear for
me to understand and go back to check it over again and
again. Most of the instructions that I have written are repeated
because search engines try to make searching easier, due to
the fact that people of all ages use the search engine. I also
added screenshots because it helps me see what Im doing
and if I'm doing it wrong. If I'm doing it wrong I will not get the
same results as the screenshots.
