Link Browsing and Pointer Browsing
The Web Browser provides two types of browsing, Pointer Browsing and Link
Browsing. When you launch the browser for the first time, Pointer Browsing is
active. If you are using a mouse to navigate in the Web Browser, we recommend
leaving Pointer Browsing active. If you are using your remote to navigate in
the Web Browser, we recommend that you replace Pointer Browsing with Link
Browsing. Link Browsing moves a highlight from one link to the next in the Web
Browser and is much faster than Pointer Browsing if you are using your remote.
To activate Link Browsing, follow these steps:
1. Use the ▲▼◀▶ buttons on your remote to move the pointer to the Link
Browser icon on the top right of the screen. The Link Browser icon is the third
icon from the right. The pointer will be in the correct position if the icon turns
blue and the words “Link Browsing” appear on the screen.
2. Press the E button. Link Browsing is activated and will remain active
whenever you bring up the Web Browser.
