If you have a slow modem connection, you may want to select the Pathways home page without graphics.
If you have a fast or direct connection, you may want to select the Pathways home page with graphics or the clickable Pathways Site Map.
After you have selected your preferred home page, just set a bookmark to go there next time and bypass this screen.
Many other pages in Pathways will have graphic images no matter which home page you choose, but their sizes are generally quite small. If you want to turn off all graphics, you can do this in your preference or option settings.
No matter which method you use to access Pathways, you still will be able to access all of the information on this server and selectively view and/or download graphic, sound, and movie files.
