The best way to remember a web page you want to visit regularly is to bookmark it. If you have a document or page you want to access on a regular basis then follow the guidelines below. Most visitors use either Explorer or Firefox web browsers and so we have given examples of these two only. If you use another browser and would like help bookmarking pages please click here to send us an email.

  • When a menu opens click on ‘Add to Favourites’. The ‘Add a Favourite’ box will open.
  • Write the name of the page in the ‘Name’ box and click the button ‘Add’. The box will close.
  • To access favourites click on the gold star in the left hand section of the browser and a box will open.
  • Click on ‘Favourites’ and your favourites will appear.
  • Then click on the link to access the page.

If you are using the Mozilla Firefox browser do the following

  • Click on ‘bookmarks’ in the menu at the top of the browser and then click on ‘Bookmark this Page’
