    Every website is designed differently. Manuvering through multi-page sites
    can be confusing and frustrating, with too many non-desired options and
    buttons scattered all over the place, especially for casual web users. So,
    what is needed is a way to make unfamiliar sites more familiar, and easier to
    use. It could work something like this. Once a general choice is made on any
    home page, the choices on the next screen can be highlighted (color-code
    button(s) maybe) to direct you to your desired destination, and thereby
    eliminating distracting, non-desired choices. This would be like following
    road signs when driving, confirming you are on the right track. Also helpful
    would be a branch diagrahm (flowchart-like) along the bottom of the screen,
    that can indicate where to go next (possibly with the same color as
    color-coded buttons), and keep you on the right course, like a road map.

    Sorry, but this suggestion appears to have nothing to do with Access, the
    database product that's part of Office Professional, and the purpose of this
    particular newsgroup.

    You'd be best off posting this to a newsgroup related to web pages.

    You have posted this to an ACCESS newsgroup. ACCESS is a database
    application that is Part of MS Office Professional. I think you have posted
    this suggestion in the wrong place. What you are describing is a website
    design issue. Not sure how Microsoft is involved. I believe that websites
    can already be designed to do what you ask.
