Information :: Help! How to navigate AEX

We put a lot of thought into AEX - and while we work to get a new database driven site built, we hope you find the current version of Atari Explorer a pleasant experience to use.

If you are having navigation challenges, or want to get the most out of our website, we offer some simple advice on how best to get around...


AEX is easy to navigate!  Excluding the home page, there are FIVE main areas within the AEX website.  If you look above, you will see a blue icon beside the "Information" area, which tells you which of the five main areas you are currently viewing.  You can click on any of these at any time.

When you enter any of the above areas, you will get a main menu on the left hand side of the page.  Each menu shows different pages which you can view.  The menu shows various icons beside a short description of the respective page.  Red Arrows donate a page which you can select, and Green Arrows donate the page you are currently viewing.

Purple Arrows donate a sub-topic of the page you are viewing.

If you want to go back to any main menu of your choice, a "Return Arrow" will donate that option. Blue for the main area menu, and Green for the parent menu of any section.

Other icons donate additional content for the page your are viewing.  All the icons are described in full below.
