Left Clicking The Little "e"
At the very top left of your Internet
Explorer browser there's a little icon. It looks like a small "e" on a piece of
paper. That's what it looks like to us anyway. Anyway, did you ever wonder what it does?
It really doesn't do too many things, but it does have a couple of important functions.
And you may find they'll come in handy in certain situations. So, let's explore what the
little "e" does!
Left clicking the "little e" will give you the
option to minimize, maximize, or close the Internet Explorer Window. This might come in
handy when you get one of those really annoying pop-up Windows where the tool bar is now
showing and there is no apparent way to close the Window. Our you might just think it's a
cool way to maximum the Window, minimize the window, or close the window. One thing for
sure, you can show your friends this tip and most likely they'll not have even noticed the
little "e". You think?
Right Clicking The Little
Right-Clicking the "little e" gives you the option
of closing Internet Explorer or making the Web page your viewing available
"offline". What does it mean to make the Web page available offline? Back a few
years ago, some people had to pay for their Internet service by the hour. It could get
very expensive. Making a Web page allowed those with limited connections the ability to
make the page available without being connected to the Internet. Basically the Web page
and all its content (graphics, scripts, images, etc.) are saved to a folder on your hard
drive and you could then, without an Internet connection view the page in all its glory.
If the page on the Web had changed in the meantime, you would not, of course, see those
changes. But, today, almost everyone in the U.S.A. has unlimited Internet and the
"Make Page Available Offline" feature is not used very much. However, people in
countries other than the United States may still have limited Internet hours available and
for them this feature can come in handy. Anyway, now you now about "offline
browsing" and what the little "e" can do :-)
