In Internet Explorer 10, one big difference from previous versions
of Internet Explorer is that there are no tools on the
screen until you display them. For example, you have to display
the address bar to use it. The address bar is a stalwart of
browsers. You use this field to enter a website address, such as
www.microsoft.com, to go to that page. However, starting with
Internet Explorer 9, that field has a dual purpose. You can still
enter a URL, but you can also use the field to search the web
for content and sites.
Open Internet Explorer 10
1 Press the Windows logo key on your
2 Click the Internet Explorer tile.
If you open Internet Explorer from the Start screen you go to
a different version of Internet Explorer than you do if you click
the IE button on the desktop taskbar.
Use the Address Bar
1 With Internet Explorer 10 open,
on the Start screen, right-click the
2 Click the address bar, and begin to
type a URL, such as www.bing.com
3 Press Enter to go to the addres
Although there are still some exceptions, accessing most websites
by using your browser no longer requires that you type the http://
or www before their names, so in the examples here, you can simply
type bing.com or amazon.com in the address bar.
