The latest version of Internet Explorer brings a number of enhancements to improve your web experience.
The new enhancements include:
Print pages by pressing Ctrl + P on the keyboard or select the Tools button > Print, and then choose Print… You can also see what the printed page will look like by selecting Print Preview…
To print only a picture from a page (and not the whole page), right-click the picture, and then select Print. In the Print dialog box, click Print again.
Your favourites can be accessed by clicking on the star icon in the top right of the screen.
Please note that favourites do not automatically transfer from one PC to another.
To add a new favourite browse to the webpage you want to save, click on the star icon then click the ‘Add to Favourites’ button.
Enter a name for the new favourite and then click Add.
You also have the option to add a favourite to the favourites bar which runs just below the address bar. To add a favourite to the Favourites bar click on the dropdown arrow next to the ‘Add to Favourites’ button then click ‘Add to Favourites’ bar.
When you select a file to download, Internet Explorer will ask what you want to do with the file. Here are some things you can do, depending on the type of file you’re downloading:
You can also save smaller files—like single pictures—to your PC. Right-select the picture, link, or file you want to save, and then choose Save picture or Save target as.
We recommend you select your H drive as the default location as you are most likely to download attachments from NHSmail. This will ensure they are not accidentally downloaded and left on the C drive.
You can use Internet Explorer keyboard shortcuts to perform a lot of different tasks quickly or to work without a mouse.
