Create Easy Access to Favorite Websites

Would you like more convenient access to websites you frequently visit? Instead of typing the web addresses each time, add the sites to your browser toolbar so they appear along the top like this:

To customize the toolbar, go the website that you wish to add. Then, right in front of the web address you will see an icon. In the example above, it’s the Temple T (circled at the top) but in some browsers, it’s just a generic icon. Simply drag the icon to the toolbar area to add the site.


Note: If these instructions don't work in Internet Explorer or Firefox, right-click

in the area around the top of the browser and, from the drop-down menu, make sure Favorites Bar (IE) or Bookmarks Toolbar (Firefox) is selected. For Chrome, click on the wrench on the right, select Bookmarks and then Show Bookmarks Bar. Then, follow the instructions above.


To further customize the toolbar, right-click on the added site to rename it. You can also use drag and drop to change the order that the sites appear. Finally, if you wish to remove a site, simply right-click on it and select Delete.
