Item 2 - Getting Started - Installing 32bit Web Browser Go to http://www.electrasoft.com/32bw.htm and download the newest version. During installation, it will ask you for your registration name and email address. Enter the name and email address you want 32bit Web Browser to be registered to. This is the name and email address that you will be known to us at ElectraSoft as. You can change any of these items later if you wish. It will also ask you for a Password. Don't worry if you do not have it yet, you can get it later. Installation Notes: Permissions Problems If you experience permissions problems it is most likely that you have a [Standard User] account. Changing your account to an [Administrator] account will fix this problem. You can not change your [Standard User] account to an [Administrator] account while logged into your own account because, (you guessed it), you do not have permission. To change your [Standard User] account to an [Administrator] account: Log off your account, log on to an [administrator account], change your account to an [Administrator] account, and reboot the computer. If you are running Windows Vista: o Click the [Start] button o Locate and select [Switch User] o Log on to an [administrator account] o Click the [Start] button o Select [Settings] o Select [ Control Panel] o Select [User Accounts] o Select [Manage another account] o Find and select [your user account] o Select [Change the account type] o Change your account to [Administrator] o Select [Change Account Type] o Reboot the computer - Tips and Tricks The history of the web sites you have visited is kept in the drop down text box where you enter in the URL. The history consists of the last 1,000 sites you have visited. If more than one instance of 32bit Web Browser is running - if in one instance the bookmarks are changed, the bookmarks will be updated to reflect the change(es) right away in any other instances.

[New Instance of 32bit Web Browser] This option makes 32bit Web Browser respond to a New Browser command by opening the web site in a new 32bit Web Browser session.
