Using a Browser
Getting Started (features vary by model)
A Web browser program searches for and displays Web site information. How you
explore the Internet depends on whether your ISP provides the browser or allows you to
choose your own.
Once you are connected to the Internet, your browser opens the home Web page. You can
go to a different Web site by entering its address (such as http://www.hp.com) into
the address box in the browser, and then pressing Enter on your keyboard. Or you can
use the browser search feature to search for references to a specific word or phrase on
Searching the Internet

The Windows search feature includes direct use of Internet Explorer Search.
NOTE: If your ISP provides the browser, you may not be able to use Internet Explorer to
search the Internet.
