Roll the mouse around the mat and watch the computer screen.

Usually you will see an arrow (picture of arrow pointer) or a line (picture of line pointer) moving around.

When a little hand (picture of hand pointer) pops up, you've found a link. These are often underlined words in colour like this. But they can also be a picture or a logo or a button.

If you press the left mouse button on a link, you will go to a different webpage, or to another part of the same webpage. This is called 'clicking on a link'. (The mouse on some computers only has one button. If so, press that one.) A link may take to to somewhere in the same website, but you might go to a website on a different computer, perhaps even in a different country.

If you don't know what to do next on any webpage, just move the mouse and watch for the little hand symbol to find a link. Then click on that link.

If you are using a touch screen rather than a mouse, tap the screen to follow a link. Unfortunately, a touch screen does not show you what is a link! Just try tapping at various possible parts of the screen.
