Slash or Backslash, That Is The Question

When typing internet URLs or folder names, do you get confused by the slash and backslash?

Forward slash is "/", and backslash is "\". I remember that the name tells me in which direction the top of the slash points. Forward slashes tell your computer you're looking for something external to your system, like web pages. Backslashes tell your computer you're looking for something inside your system, like a drive or a file.

I hope this helps clear up the question of the slash or the backslash.
