Each tab functions like a Browser window to display distinct content, but you can switch back and forth between tabs without opening more Browser windows.

When you launch the Browser, it displays your start group, each page on a separate tab. In addition to the start group tabs, you can create new tabs to view additional web pages.

  1. Open your Browser, and sign in to AT&T Yahoo!.

  2. Take one of the following actions:

    • Enter the URL of the page you want to display in the Address field, and click the Tab button.
