TO NAVIGATE more conveniently, take a look at the layout page first. Then come back for further tips on how to navigate.
Change of Text Size
IF THE text is awkwardly small on your screen, you can make the font size (letters) bigger thus:
TIP: 'Medium' font size may give the most fit printings.
TO COMPARE two pages, get two windows on the screen. You may put the second window beside or below the first, or otherwise. Here is how to do it for some browsers - the steps are perhaps simpler in more recent browsers:
Shift between the windows on your screen by pressing down the keys 'Alt' and 'Tab' simultaneously: [Alt + Tab]. You can quite easily scroll the pages by that feature. Try it out. For example there is more than one translation of the ancient philosophical treatise Tao Te Ching on-site, and several translations of the Norse teaching poem Havamal. By opening two (or more) windows you can compare two (or more) versions quite easily.
Keeping an Extra Window for the Dictionary
On some pages there are particular words of yoga and Buddhism. You can arrange things a bit to have one of the site's dictionaries at hand as you read. First, get two windows (as in the section above). Find the site dictionary that serves you - "click it up" and download it if you will, to have it on one of the pages. As you read you may shift between two windows by [Alt + Tab] (as above). It makes the looking up of novel terms easy. The tip has been given.
ANY PAGE here hopefully contains just what you need of buttons, icons (clickable pictures) and text links to navigate comfortably. The over-all design is that the top and bottom of a page helps you back and on, and what is between top and bottom may show connections.
Between top and bottom there are up-arrows and other icons. But we do not have to look for "Up" or an arrow pointing upward to get to the top of a page: Click [Ctrl + Home] on the keyboard to get to the top of a page, and [Ctrl + End] to get to the bottom, where literature references can be found in many cases, or a link to the site's bibliography.
To search a page, click [Ctrl + f] and use the search box to your liking. Fill inn words or segments in the box and go on. The box works very well for such as titles, word parts, whole words and connected phrases. It can also pay to try a site search through a large search engine like Google. Include "oaks.nvg" among the word(s) you look for.
To shift between windows, [Alt + Tab] is the great help.
For site searches, press the 'Search' text link or icon that appears on almost all the pages and see what a FreeFind search and Google Search may do for you. Alternative, use a large search engine and include "nvg.org" in addition to your search words.
YOU CAN usually handle a computer much faster with keyboard commands than with mouse commands. Some much used keyboard commands are listed below in sets; I prefer the first alternative. Test which works on your computer:
[Page Up] or [Ctrl + Page Up] - Take you one "screen window" up.
[Page Down] or [Ctrl + Page Down] - Take you one "screen window" down.
[Home] or [Ctrl + Home] - Take you to the top of the page at once.
[End] or [Ctrl + End] - Take you to the end of the page at once.
