  2. 2. Yahoo! Teacher Tools <ul><li>Turn on SafeSearch . </li></ul><ul><li>Yahoo!’s SafeSearch can be set to filter out explicit, adult-oriented images from search results. While SafeSearch filters out a large quantity of mature content, no filter is perfect, and Yahoo! cannot guarantee that all explicit images will be removed from search results. </li></ul><ul><li>To turn on SafeSearch, click the Advanced Search link next to the search box or Preference in the upper-right corner of any Yahoo! Image Search results page. </li></ul><ul><li>Yahoo! Search + Creative Commons: </li></ul><ul><li>This Yahoo! Search service finds content across the Web that has a Creative Commons license. While most stuff you find on the web has a full copyright, this search helps you find content published by authors who want you to share or reuse it, under certain conditions </li></ul><ul><li>Learn More: http:// search.yahoo.com /cc </li></ul><ul><li>Lock SafeSearch. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers can make sure the SafeSearch settings are not changed by selecting Lock SafeSearch on the SafeSearch Preferences page. </li></ul><ul><li>This prevents anyone on your computer who is using the same browser from changing SafeSearch settings unless they are registered as a Yahoo! user over 18 years of age. </li></ul><ul><li>If your family uses multiple browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Opera, consider locking SafeSearch on each. </li></ul><ul><li>What is a Yahoo! Shortcut? </li></ul><ul><li>A Yahoo! Shortcut is a quick way to get to the information you want. A Yahoo! Shortcut automatically appears when it is relevant to your search and can contain links to useful content from Yahoo!, its partners, or across the web. </li></ul>
