How To Use Frames

If you are unfamilair with the Frames feature, this brief tutorial will show you how to use them most effectively. The tutorial is based on using Netscape Navigator 2.0. Other browsers may vary. The most important thing to remember when using the Frames feature is that you move forwards and backwards through a site by accessing a pop-up menu from the screen and not through the Back Button of your Web browser. (For further information you may want to check out the following Netscape page: Navigating Site with Frames. )

  1. The MicroMac Web site is broken down into two frames. As information loads into your Web browser, it appears on the screen in the Main Window (Frame #1). The Directory Window (Frame #2) contains the Navigation Buttons that remain on the screen at all times, allowing for easy navigation of the Web site.

  2. If you have the Frames feature turned off or your Web browser does not support frames, the information in the Directory Window (Frame #2) is available at the bottom of each page in the form of hyperlinked text.

  3. As you navigate through the site, you can move forwards and backwards through the pages that load into the Main Window (Frame #1) by selecting a region on the screen of the Main Window and holding down the mouse button.

    Selecting the Pop-Up Menu

  4. Then select either 'Back in Frame' or 'Forward in Frame' that appears in the pop-up menu .

  5. To print information from the Main Window (Frame #1) or print the Directory Window (Frame #2), click on the desired frame and select 'Print Frame...' from the File menu at the top of the screen.
