Looking at a map of a location can be helpful, but finding a
route from one place to another is one of the major uses of a
mapping program. By entering a start point and end point, the
Maps app can calculate the route, tell you the total miles and
time it will take to make the trip, and give you step-by-step
1 With the Maps app open, right-click
and then click Directions.
2 Click in the A field, and type a starting
address or location.
3 Click in the B field, and type an
ending address or location.
4 Click the Get Directions arrow.
5 To display the route on the map, click
any segment in the directions.
To remove the route and clear the To and
From fields, right-click to display the toolbar
and then click the Clear Map button.
To reverse the directions and switch the
To and From locations, click the Direction
arrows to the right of the first field. This is
handy because on your return trip you might
find that the directions differ slightly due to
one-way roads or other routing anomalies
