    Explanation
    The address bar is used when you already know the correct web address. It allows you to directly enter the URL of a specific website or webpage you want to access.

    Explanation
    When using a search engine, you will go to an index of websites relevant to your search. A search engine provides a list of websites that match the keywords or phrases you entered, allowing you to choose the most relevant result from the index. It does not guarantee that you will find exactly what you are looking for, but it helps narrow down the options by presenting a curated list of websites related to your search query.

    To access your email account, you will need both your email address and password. The email address is used to identify your specific account, while the password serves as a security measure to ensure that only authorized individuals can access the account. Without both of these pieces of information, you will not be able to access your email account.

This is a common symbol used to represent the "close" or "exit" function in many applications and browsers. By clicking on this cross symbol, you can effectively close each webpage and ultimately end your internet session.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A dialogue box pops up when signing into your emails on a shared computer asking if you would like your password to be remembered.  Your answer would be to click on... 

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    • C.

      Ignore it!

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    Clicking on "No" would be the correct answer because selecting "No" means that you do not want your password to be remembered on the shared computer. This is important for security reasons as it prevents unauthorized access to your email account if someone else were to use the computer after you. By not allowing the password to be remembered, you ensure that you will need to manually enter your password each time you sign in, providing an extra layer of protection for your account.

      Open it and forward to all your conatcts

    Correct Answer
    B. Delete it immediately
    Explanation
    When receiving an email attachment from an unknown sender, it is important to delete it immediately. Opening attachments from unfamiliar sources can expose your computer to viruses, malware, or other security threats. Even if you have antivirus software, it is not foolproof and may not be able to detect all potential risks. Therefore, to protect your computer and personal information, it is best to err on the side of caution and delete the email without opening the attachment.
