First, make sure you have IE 7. You can see if you already have it by clicking on Help and About Internet Explorer. Your version will be displayed. If you have it, great! If not, download Internet Explorer 7. Once you have IE 7, you may use tabbed browsing by first going to any website. Then, press CONTROL key & the T key. You’ll then see a new tab or small square box appear at the top of your web page. Click the tab and you’ll be able to enter a new website.
Tabbed browsing is a big deal with IE 7. Why? IE 7 is the most secure browser out there compared to Firefox and Netscape. Internet Explorer guards against more spyware and malicious threats that the other browsers don’t protect against.
