Preview in a Browser

To preview your page in a browser window to see what it will look like once it is loaded on the World Wide Web:

Step 1:
Click on the “browse” icon in the toolbar.

This will open a browser window so you can see how your page will appear after you load it on to a web server and make it viewable on the World Wide Web.

Step 2:

To verify the location of your page, look in the address bar at the top of the window:

A file path beginning with file:///C:/ is displayed, meaning that the file is stored on your local hard drive (the C drive is your local hard drive).

address window with http://
A file path beginning with http:// means that your file is on the World Wide Web.
