Navigating through folders
- Once you have logged in you can then navigate through
the folders to get to your subject area.
- Double click a folder to open it.
- Once you have arrived at the folder where you upload
your web pages, you can add this location to the Internet Explorer
'Favorites' (bookmarks) so you can return there easily at a later date.
- Additionally you can drag the location icon in the
'Address' bar straight onto the desktop which creates a shortcut to your
folder. Just double click it at any time and you will be asked for your
password and taken straight there.
- Open the folder on the hard disk or network drive
where your files are located.
- Position the folder window (or Windows NT Explorer) so
you can see both it and the Internet Explorer window.
- Simply drag and drop the files from the folder window
to Internet Explorer to upload them:
Depending on your Internet Explorer version you can or cannot use 'drag
and drop' to download files.
- If you cannot, instead, select the files you want,
right mouse click them and select 'Copy To Folder...' from the pop up menu:
- Alternatively, select the files and choose 'Copy To
Folder...' from the 'File' menu.
- Then select where you want to save the files on the
'Browse for Folder' tree:
