What are they and how are they used?
Plug-ins are software programs that allow your web browser to do things
it would not otherwise be able to do. Plug-ins allow you to view movies,
and play interactive games and simulations.

If your computer is relatively new, it is likely you already have most
of the most popular plug-ins. But, if you come across a web site where
the activity doesn't seem to work, you will need to learn how to install
the plug-in into your web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer or Netscape).
Fortunately, the best sites make this easy for you by giving you easy
instructions along with the links to get the plug-in. Most plug-ins will
install themselves with the click of a button or two.
important to read the installation instructions provided at each plug-ins
download site, but here are the basic steps:
- At the
download site, select the correct operating system for your
computer (MacOS, Windows 98, etc.)
the instructions for downloading provided at the site so that you
can refer to them as you download.
the proper download button, select the location or directory
where you want to save your plug-in (some browsers have a specific
folder for plug-ins), make a note of where the plug-in is being saved,
and click "save". Download times vary depending upon the plug-in.
- Exit your
browser, find the plug-in file you saved, double-click to
open the file, double-click on the install icon, and follow the
standard installation instructions.
your browser and you're ready to begin!
