Internet Bookmarks are a fantastic way to save great information and websites you have discovered or use often whilst surfing the web.
If you simply want to remind yourself of some interesting info or make it a breeze to revisit certain sites you visit regularly, ie your Email account, internet banking, YouTube etc, then bookmarking is for you!
Bookmarks are saved into your browsers toolbar and are really easy to grab and reopen. So much more time efficient and practical than opening a text document, copy and pasting the URLs, naming that URL then saving the file and storing it in a a place you can easily locate and open. Even once you find it, you still have to copy and paste the URL back into he search bar to pull up the site… urgh tiring!
With a bookmark all you have to do is navigate to ‘Bookmarks’ on your internet browsers toolbar (they should all have one). A drop down menu will appear with all your stored bookmarks. They are accompanied with a personal name you have given them, so you instantly know what they are and why you saved them. Often they partnered by the websites ‘favacon’ image (if the site has one) which make pulling up a desired bookmark much faster as it is easier to locate.
Creating a bookmark is surprising easy and far from complicated.
