Step 3: When a browser window is opened for the first time, IE 8.0 will ask whether you'd like to turn on Suggested Sites. This function uses your browsing history to suggest websites you might like. To turn this on, select Yes. You'll be able to switch it off if you change your mind at a later date.
Step 4: The optional express settings make IE 8.0 the default browser and Yahoo your default search engine. Choose ‘custom settings' to personalise the browser; you'll be able to decide between Microsoft's default configuration and your own preferences on a case-by-case basis.
Step 5: Like Firefox, IE 8.0 suggests websites based on partially typed addresses or words. For example, if you type www.pc into the address bar, IE 8.0 will offer a range of full matching addresses, such as http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk. To select one of these addresses, right-click it. IE 8.0 then automatically loads this page.
Step 6: IE 8.0 allows you to add buttons to the Favorites bar just below the web-address field. Enter the URL in the address bar and then, from the Favorites menu at the top of the browser, select ‘Add to Favorites Bar'. A button will appear. As soon as you click it, that page will load automatically.
