Updating Your Web Browser

SantaSearch wants to make your experience on our website easier and more enjoyable. As technology for building web pages advances, the browsers you use to view web pages are also periodically updated. New features added to the SantaSearch website that offer enhanced opportunities for visualization and interaction often depend on the viewer using an updated browser. By using the most recent web browsers available, it will take you less time to navigate the website, while making it more fun and educational at the same time.

It's easy to upgrade!

Use the "Help" button usually located along the very top of your current web browser to determine which version of the browser you are using.
  • If you are currently using Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.x or greater, click "Tools' from the main menu and select "Windows Update." Doing so allows Explorer to catalog the installed components of your system and produce a list of appropriate updates for Internet Explorer as well as Windows.
  • If you are currently using Netscape 3.x or higher, click "Help" on the main Netscape menu and select "Software Updates." This goes to Netscape's "Smart Update" page. Simply follow their instructions.
  • If you have an earlier version of the above browsers, go to the following sites to download a full new release:

Printing Instructions

When printing certain pages in "portrait" mode within SantaSearch, you may find that text on the right side of the page is cut off. To print the entire width of the page, choose "landscape" mode from your printer menu. To do this, you will need to do one of the following:
  • From the "File" menu, click on "Print." This will open the "Print" dialogue box. Choose "Properties" for your designated printer. This will open another dialogue box. Look for the "Orientation" section and click the radio button next to "Landscape." Click "OK" for both dialogue boxes.

  • From the "File" menu, click on "Page Setup." This will open the "Printer Setup" dialogue box. Look for the "Orientation" section and click the radio button next to "Landscape." Click "OK" and print the page.
If you encounter trouble, consult the documentation or "Help" within your browser.
