INTRODUCTION TO
THE INTERNET WITH
WINDOWS 7 CHANGES
PRESENTED BY CELIA BANDELIER1
WHAT IS THE INTERNET?
 The Internet, sometimes called simply “the Net,”
is a worldwide system of computer networks—a
network of networks in which users at any one
computer can, if they have permission, get
information from any other computer (and
sometime talk directly to users at other computers).
2
E-MAIL
 Electronic Mail (e-mail) is the most widely used
application on the Net. Electronic mail,
commonly called email or e-mail, is a method of
exchanging digital messages from an author to
one or more recipients.
3
CHAT
 Another popular feature of the Internet is you can
carry on live “conversations” with other computer
users, using Chat.
 Chat is real-time communication between two
users via computer. Once a chat has been initiated,
either user can enter text by typing on the keyboard
and the entered text will appear on the other user's
monitor. Most networks and online services offer a
chat feature.
4

messaging-abbreviations
5
WORLD WIDE WEB
 The most widely used part of the Internet is the
World Wide Web (often abbreviated “WWW” or
called “the Web”. The World Wide Web is a
system of interlinked hypertext documents
accessed via the Internet.
6
HYPERTEXT
 Hypertext is a method of instant cross-
referencing. In most Web sites, certain words or
phrases appear in text of a different color than
the rest; often this text is also underlined. When
you select one of these words or phrases, you will
be transferred to a page that is relevant to this
word or phrase. Sometimes there are buttons,
images or portions of images that are “clickable”.
7
ACCESSING THE INTERNET
 You can access the Internet at home with a
personal computer or at various community
locations, like the library, schools, etc. Be aware
that if you use a public computer to access the
Internet, there is probably an Internet Use
Policy and you will be responsible for following
those rules and policies.
 NOTE: To see the Roanoke Public Library’s
Internet Use Policy go to www.roanoke.lib.in.us
then click Policies tab then Acceptable Use.
8
REQUIRED TO GO ON INTERNET
 If you are using your own computer, you will
need to have at least 3 pieces of hardware /
software to access the internet.
9
#1 A MODEM
 A modem is the piece of hardware that “calls”
your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and
connects your computer to theirs. A modem can
connect through a phone line or through a cable
connection.
10
#2 INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER
 Your computer cannot connect directly to the
Internet. You need a third party, the ISP, to connect
to the Internet. The ISP you chose will provide you
with the necessary software to connect your
computer to theirs, and then to the Internet. Some
Internet providers are free while others charge a
monthly fee. Differences in ISPs include:
 Connection speed
 Appearance of online ads
 Number of hours included in their plan each month
 Number of email accounts provided
 Web page space available 11
#3 WEB BROWSER
 This is the software that allows you to view
graphics and other components on the Internet.
The most popular are Microsoft Internet Explorer
or Netscape Navigator. The appearance of a
particular Web site may vary slightly depending
on the browser you use.
12
ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE
 Anti-virus software is a program that runs in
the background of your computer and continually
scans your hard drive for viruses. If a virus is
detected, the program notifies you and
quarantines the infected file so you can safely
delete it from your computer.
 You want to make sure you have an antivirus
program installed AND up to date on your
computer! Some viruses can be spread just by
opening a website and there is no way to know
until it has infected your computer!
13
FIREWALLS
 Firewalls are programs that add another level
of security and are especially important to have if
you connect through a cable modem or another
connection that is “on” all the time. A firewall
protects your computer from someone on the
outside gaining access. Without a firewall,
someone could potentially access the files on your
computer, or send emails through your email
account.
14
COOKIES
 A cookie is information that a website puts on your
hard disk so that it can remember something about
you at a later time. Cookies are required for many
websites to display correctly or accumulate
information you are entering.
 If it is a reputable website, it is usually safe to accept
cookies.
15
URL
 Every website on the Internet has a unique
address and to access that website, you must
know the address. A website address is called a
URL, or Uniform Resource Locator.
16
ADDRESS OF A WEBSITE
 The format of website addresses are almost all
the same. Most start with www, for world wide
web. Then comes the actual address of the site,
followed by a “dot” extension, which identifies
the domain. The address is like a house
number-it identifies a specific person or account.
17
DOMAIN
 A domain is a group of hosts (or computers that
have web sites on them) that are of a same or
similar organization. The domain is like a street
address—a lot of people live or have accounts
there. There are 6 common domains set up for
US Internet sites:
1. .com Commercial
2. .net Network
3. .gov Government
4. .edu Educational
5. .org Organization (usually not for profit)
6. .mil Military 18
EXAMPLE
 An example of a website address is:
 www.uncanmanuals.com
 “uncanmanuals” is the address.
 .com is the domain extension
 NOTE: Since every website address must be
unique, the same name may be used for different
websites but they will each use a different dot
extension.
19
TEN POPULAR WEBSITES
 You have probably heard of or will hear of these
websites, even if you never use them.
1. Google (google.com)—a site where you can set
up an e-mail account, read the news, get
directions, and go shopping, but at its core
Google is a search engine.
2. Wikipedia (wikipedia.org)—an online
encyclopedia that is free but it is user-written
and edited.
3. Amazon (amazon.com)—it began as a way to
sell books without costs associated with a
physical bookstore and has become a store for
almost everything
20
MORE OF WEBSITES
4. Facebook (facebook.com)—a social networking
website for keeping in touch with old friends and
making new ones.
5. eBay (ebay.com)—an online auction where
people sell everything, from real (DVDs, cars,
furniture) to more conceptual (one man auctioned
his life).
6. Yahoo (yahoo.com)—a search engine, an e-mail
outlet, and a news source.
7. The Drudge Report (drudgereport.com)—Matt
Drudge combines links to other new sources and
stories he writes himself to bring his readers the
latest news and rumors. It broke the Monica
Lewinsky story in 1998. 21
MORE WEBSITES
8. Blogger (blogger.com)—creates a website for
people to blog. Blog is an abbreviation of “web
log”, a term for an online journal, column, etc.
9. Craigslist (craigslist.org)—low-tech, local
version of eBay. It is like a huge community
bulletin board, allowing a person to find just
about anything.
10. YouTube (youtube.com)—allows users to post
short videos.
22
FINDING A WEBSITE
 There is no “directory” available for internet
addresses (websites) because there are so many
and they change all the time. However, as we
will explore later, there are lots of Search
Engines you can use to find sites about the
information you are seeking.
23

31
HYPERLINKS
 Most websites have multiple pages. The page that
opens when you type in a website address is
usually the site’s home page. There may be other
pages included in the website that can be accessed
by a hyperlink. Hyperlinks are connections to
other pages in the site you are looking at or to
another unrelated site.

SEARCH ENGINES
 On the Internet, a search engine is a coordinated
set of programs that includes:
1. A spider (also called a “crawler” or a “bot”) that goes
to every page or representative pages on every Web
site that wants to be searchable and reads it.
2. A program that creates a huge index (sometimes
called a “catalog”) from the pages that have been
read.
3. A program that receives your search request,
compares it to the entries in the index, and returns
results to you.
38
SEARCH ENGINE APPROACHES
 Major search engines such as Google and Yahoo
(which uses Google) index the content of a large
portion of the Web and provide results.
 Ask Jeeves provides a general search of the Web
but allows you to enter a search request in natural
language such as “What’s the weather in Seattle
today?”
 Special tools and some major Web sites such as
Yahoo let you use a number of search engines at the
same time and compile results for you in a single
list.
39
INDIVIDUAL WEBSITES
 Individual Web sites, especially larger corporate
sites, may use a search engine to index and retrieve
the content of just their own site. Some of the major
search engine companies license or sell their search
engines for use on individual sites.
40
HOW TO SEARCH
 If you know of a specialized search engine such as
SearchNetworking that matches your subject (for
example, Networking), you’ll save time by using
that search engine.
 If there isn’t a specialized search engine, try Google
or perhaps other search engines for their results.
41
SOME POSSIBLE SEARCH ENGINES
 www.google.com
 www.altavista.com
 www.askgeeves.com
 www.goto.com
 www.excite.com
 www.hotbot.com
 www.looksmart.com
 www.yahoo.com
 www.lycos.com
42
SAVING A DOCUMENT
 You can save a web page to a flash drive or to a
hard drive. You may do this in order to print it
in a word processor (this gives you more control
of the pages you print) or to view it later.
43

 When the page you want to save is open, click on
the File then Save As…on the main menu.
44
STEP #2
 The Save Webpage dialog box will open.

Introduction to internet with windows 7 changes

  • 1. INTRODUCTION TO THE INTERNET WITH WINDOWS 7 CHANGES PRESENTED BY CELIA BANDELIER1
  • 2. WHAT IS THE INTERNET?  The Internet, sometimes called simply “the Net,” is a worldwide system of computer networks—a network of networks in which users at any one computer can, if they have permission, get information from any other computer (and sometime talk directly to users at other computers). 2
  • 3. E-MAIL  Electronic Mail (e-mail) is the most widely used application on the Net. Electronic mail, commonly called email or e-mail, is a method of exchanging digital messages from an author to one or more recipients. 3
  • 4. CHAT  Another popular feature of the Internet is you can carry on live “conversations” with other computer users, using Chat.  Chat is real-time communication between two users via computer. Once a chat has been initiated, either user can enter text by typing on the keyboard and the entered text will appear on the other user's monitor. Most networks and online services offer a chat feature. 4
  • 5. CHAT –ABBREVIATIONS AND MEANINGS  <3 heart 404 I haven't a clue  A3 Anyplace, anywhere, anytime ADN Any day now  AFAIK As far as I know AFK Away from keyboard  ARE Acronym-rich environment ASAP As soon as possible  A/S/L? Age/sex/location? B4N Bye for now  BAK Back at the keyboard BAS Big a** smile  BBIAB Be back in a bit BBL Be back later  BBN Bye bye now BBS Be back soon  BEG Big evil grin BF Boy friend  BFD Big f***ing deal BFN Bye for now  BG Big grin BIBO Beer in, beer out  BIOYIOP Blow it out your I/O port BL Belly laughing   NOTE: These are just a few of the abbreviations and meanings that are used for a more complete list, go to http://searchcrm.techtarget.com/definition/Twitter-chat-and-text- messaging-abbreviations 5
  • 6. WORLD WIDE WEB  The most widely used part of the Internet is the World Wide Web (often abbreviated “WWW” or called “the Web”. The World Wide Web is a system of interlinked hypertext documents accessed via the Internet. 6
  • 7. HYPERTEXT  Hypertext is a method of instant cross- referencing. In most Web sites, certain words or phrases appear in text of a different color than the rest; often this text is also underlined. When you select one of these words or phrases, you will be transferred to a page that is relevant to this word or phrase. Sometimes there are buttons, images or portions of images that are “clickable”. 7
  • 8. ACCESSING THE INTERNET  You can access the Internet at home with a personal computer or at various community locations, like the library, schools, etc. Be aware that if you use a public computer to access the Internet, there is probably an Internet Use Policy and you will be responsible for following those rules and policies.  NOTE: To see the Roanoke Public Library’s Internet Use Policy go to www.roanoke.lib.in.us then click Policies tab then Acceptable Use. 8
  • 9. REQUIRED TO GO ON INTERNET  If you are using your own computer, you will need to have at least 3 pieces of hardware / software to access the internet. 9
  • 10. #1 A MODEM  A modem is the piece of hardware that “calls” your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and connects your computer to theirs. A modem can connect through a phone line or through a cable connection. 10
  • 11. #2 INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER  Your computer cannot connect directly to the Internet. You need a third party, the ISP, to connect to the Internet. The ISP you chose will provide you with the necessary software to connect your computer to theirs, and then to the Internet. Some Internet providers are free while others charge a monthly fee. Differences in ISPs include:  Connection speed  Appearance of online ads  Number of hours included in their plan each month  Number of email accounts provided  Web page space available 11
  • 12. #3 WEB BROWSER  This is the software that allows you to view graphics and other components on the Internet. The most popular are Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. The appearance of a particular Web site may vary slightly depending on the browser you use. 12
  • 13. ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE  Anti-virus software is a program that runs in the background of your computer and continually scans your hard drive for viruses. If a virus is detected, the program notifies you and quarantines the infected file so you can safely delete it from your computer.  You want to make sure you have an antivirus program installed AND up to date on your computer! Some viruses can be spread just by opening a website and there is no way to know until it has infected your computer! 13
  • 14. FIREWALLS  Firewalls are programs that add another level of security and are especially important to have if you connect through a cable modem or another connection that is “on” all the time. A firewall protects your computer from someone on the outside gaining access. Without a firewall, someone could potentially access the files on your computer, or send emails through your email account. 14
  • 15. COOKIES  A cookie is information that a website puts on your hard disk so that it can remember something about you at a later time. Cookies are required for many websites to display correctly or accumulate information you are entering.  If it is a reputable website, it is usually safe to accept cookies. 15
  • 16. URL  Every website on the Internet has a unique address and to access that website, you must know the address. A website address is called a URL, or Uniform Resource Locator. 16
  • 17. ADDRESS OF A WEBSITE  The format of website addresses are almost all the same. Most start with www, for world wide web. Then comes the actual address of the site, followed by a “dot” extension, which identifies the domain. The address is like a house number-it identifies a specific person or account. 17
  • 18. DOMAIN  A domain is a group of hosts (or computers that have web sites on them) that are of a same or similar organization. The domain is like a street address—a lot of people live or have accounts there. There are 6 common domains set up for US Internet sites: 1. .com Commercial 2. .net Network 3. .gov Government 4. .edu Educational 5. .org Organization (usually not for profit) 6. .mil Military 18
  • 19. EXAMPLE  An example of a website address is:  www.uncanmanuals.com  “uncanmanuals” is the address.  .com is the domain extension  NOTE: Since every website address must be unique, the same name may be used for different websites but they will each use a different dot extension. 19
  • 20. TEN POPULAR WEBSITES  You have probably heard of or will hear of these websites, even if you never use them. 1. Google (google.com)—a site where you can set up an e-mail account, read the news, get directions, and go shopping, but at its core Google is a search engine. 2. Wikipedia (wikipedia.org)—an online encyclopedia that is free but it is user-written and edited. 3. Amazon (amazon.com)—it began as a way to sell books without costs associated with a physical bookstore and has become a store for almost everything 20
  • 21. MORE OF WEBSITES 4. Facebook (facebook.com)—a social networking website for keeping in touch with old friends and making new ones. 5. eBay (ebay.com)—an online auction where people sell everything, from real (DVDs, cars, furniture) to more conceptual (one man auctioned his life). 6. Yahoo (yahoo.com)—a search engine, an e-mail outlet, and a news source. 7. The Drudge Report (drudgereport.com)—Matt Drudge combines links to other new sources and stories he writes himself to bring his readers the latest news and rumors. It broke the Monica Lewinsky story in 1998. 21
  • 22. MORE WEBSITES 8. Blogger (blogger.com)—creates a website for people to blog. Blog is an abbreviation of “web log”, a term for an online journal, column, etc. 9. Craigslist (craigslist.org)—low-tech, local version of eBay. It is like a huge community bulletin board, allowing a person to find just about anything. 10. YouTube (youtube.com)—allows users to post short videos. 22
  • 23. FINDING A WEBSITE  There is no “directory” available for internet addresses (websites) because there are so many and they change all the time. However, as we will explore later, there are lots of Search Engines you can use to find sites about the information you are seeking. 23
  • 24. CONNECTING TO THE INTERNET  Double click the Internet Explore icon on your desktop. 24
  • 25. HOME PAGE  Internet explorer will open to whatever you have set as your home page.  At the Library, our home page is the Roanoke Public Library’s website. NOTE: When on your own computer, your home page is the page that opens every time you connect to the internet. 25
  • 26. CHANGING YOUR HOME PAGE  You can change your home page by clicking Tools on the menu bar, the Internet Options. In Windows 7, you will click the and then click Internet Options. 26 Windows 7Windows XP
  • 27. INTERNET OPTIONS The address of your home page is in the Home page box. You can click on…  Use Current to set the open page as your home page  Use Default to set the ISPs page as your home page  Use Blank for a blank window to be your home page  type in the address of the website of your choice.  Windows XP Windows 7 27
  • 28. STANDARD TOOLBAR  The standard toolbar has buttons for the most commonly used commands in Internet Explorer. You can use these buttons to help explore the internet. To see a description of a button, move the mouse pointer over the button and hold it still. A short description of the button will appear. 28
  • 29. TOOLBAR ITEMS  Back: Moves you back to your previous screen(s)  Forward: Moves you ahead one screen if you’ve already moved back.  Stop: Stops downloading the page Internet Explorer is attempting to display.  Refresh: Reload the current page (download it from the server again)  Home: opens your home page  Search: Type in a key word e.g. 'Football' and you will be presented with a list of all the relevant web sites.. 29
  • 30. MORE TOOLBAR ITEMS  Favorites: Opens a list of bookmarks to your favorite sites Add a Favorite: Adds current site to your Favorites list.  History: Opens a list of sites you have visited recently  Mail: Brings up Outlook Express to allow you to send and read email  Print: Allows you to print the current page  Edit: lets you edit the current page in Word. 30
  • 31. USING THE ADDRESS BAR  The address bar allows you to type in the web address or click on the down arrow for a list of addresses you have entered in the past. Once you type in the address, click on the Go button or press the Enter key on the keyboard. 31
  • 32. HYPERLINKS  Most websites have multiple pages. The page that opens when you type in a website address is usually the site’s home page. There may be other pages included in the website that can be accessed by a hyperlink. Hyperlinks are connections to other pages in the site you are looking at or to another unrelated site. 32
  • 33. HOW TO RECOGNIZE A HYPERLINK You can usually tell a hyperlink when you see it. It may…  Be a different color.  Be underlined.  Change the mouse pointer to a hand when pointing at it. NOTE: Many pictures can also be hyperlinks—watch how the mouse pointer changes when you point to it. 33
  • 34. FAVORITES  When you open a page you like and want to save for future reference, click on Favorites on the menu bar and choose Add to Favorites. 34
  • 35. ADD A FAVORITE  The Add a Favorite window will open.  The window will show what the site will be listed under (this can be changed).  Click on Add button to add it. 35
  • 36. OPEN A FAVORITE  To open a saved favorite, click on Favorites on the main menu, choose the name of the favorite from the list. 36
  • 37. EXERCISES 1. Open Internet Explorer 2. Go to Google by typing it in the address bar. Save this site to your favorites. 3. Practice using the back and forward buttons. 4. Click on the Home Page button on the toolbar to go back to www.roanoke.lib.in.us 5. Click on some of the text links and some of the picture links. 37
  • 38. SEARCH ENGINES  On the Internet, a search engine is a coordinated set of programs that includes: 1. A spider (also called a “crawler” or a “bot”) that goes to every page or representative pages on every Web site that wants to be searchable and reads it. 2. A program that creates a huge index (sometimes called a “catalog”) from the pages that have been read. 3. A program that receives your search request, compares it to the entries in the index, and returns results to you. 38
  • 39. SEARCH ENGINE APPROACHES  Major search engines such as Google and Yahoo (which uses Google) index the content of a large portion of the Web and provide results.  Ask Jeeves provides a general search of the Web but allows you to enter a search request in natural language such as “What’s the weather in Seattle today?”  Special tools and some major Web sites such as Yahoo let you use a number of search engines at the same time and compile results for you in a single list. 39
  • 40. INDIVIDUAL WEBSITES  Individual Web sites, especially larger corporate sites, may use a search engine to index and retrieve the content of just their own site. Some of the major search engine companies license or sell their search engines for use on individual sites. 40
  • 41. HOW TO SEARCH  If you know of a specialized search engine such as SearchNetworking that matches your subject (for example, Networking), you’ll save time by using that search engine.  If there isn’t a specialized search engine, try Google or perhaps other search engines for their results. 41
  • 42. SOME POSSIBLE SEARCH ENGINES  www.google.com  www.altavista.com  www.askgeeves.com  www.goto.com  www.excite.com  www.hotbot.com  www.looksmart.com  www.yahoo.com  www.lycos.com 42
  • 43. SAVING A DOCUMENT  You can save a web page to a flash drive or to a hard drive. You may do this in order to print it in a word processor (this gives you more control of the pages you print) or to view it later. 43
  • 44. STEP #1  When the page you want to save is open, click on the File then Save As…on the main menu. 44
  • 45. STEP #2  The Save Webpage dialog box will open. 45
  • 46. STEP #3  Select the folder you want the page saved in and give it a file name. Then click on the Save button. 46 1. Choose the Folder you want to save it in 2. Name the file 3. Click Save
  • 47. DOWNLOADING A DOCUMENT OR FILE  Sometimes you may have the option to download a program or file to your computer. This means you are copying a file or program from somewhere on the internet to your computer.  When you download you have 2 options—to open the program or file or to save it to disk. 47
  • 48. OPEN  If you open the program, the download and installation will happen immediately. 48
  • 49. SAVE  If you save the program, you can choose when to install the program. 49

  • 52. SCROLL DOWN TO DOWNLOADS 52
  • 53. SELECT A GAME TO DOWNLOAD 53

  • 55. CLICK DOWNLOAD  The File Download window will open. Here is where you can choose to Save or Open the program you are downloading. 55
  • 56. CHOOSE  If you choose Open, the download will begin. If you choose Save, you will be asked where to save the file. Make sure you make note of where you save it so you can find it later on! 56
  • 57. EXERCISES  Using a search engine, try to find the following information:  Local weather forecast for Roanoke, IN  A place to eat in Kalamazoo, MI  A place to stay overnight in Lexington, KY  What specials Toys R Us has online this week  Look up your phone number (try www.whitepages.com)  Save a website to the hard drive in the My Documents folder.  Spend time exploring different websites 57
