How to bookmark favourite websites

How often do you have to type in tricky addresses when you want to visit your favourite website? Bookmarking webpages means you can visit websites at the click of a button, instead of trying to remember its name each time.

Here’s how to add a website to your bookmarks in your preferred web browser.

  2. Click on the ‘Bookmarks’ tab at the top left of the screen
  3. In the drop-down menu click ‘ Bookmark this page’

  2. On the right of the search bar is the outline of a star
  3. Click on this star and it will turn yellow

Apple Safari (Mac)

  1. Navigate to the website
  2. Click on the ‘Bookmarks’ tab at the top of the screen
  3. In the dropdown menu, click ‘Add bookmark’
  4. From the pop-up menu, you can change the name of the bookmark and select its location. Adding bookmarks to the toolbar, located just below the search bar, means they’ll be easily found next time.

    Also for "Internet Explorer (PC)" you can go one step further.
    When you click "Add to Favourites", you get the choice to, add to "Favourites" or "Favourites Bar".
    For your regular sites like Netbank, TV Programs, Lotto, and AFL Ladder etc, etc, click add to favourites bar and you have the quick link at the top of your screen. You can usually fit about 20 links to the Favourites bar.

    No, you ring Tony Burke and ask him if he can help you if you give his kids Gold Plated Push bikes.
    He will probably want them delivered by Private jet to his House in the hills in southern France. You know, the house he goes to during our winter to save Medi-Bank supplying him with cough lollies.
