the ctrl key and I'm going to click on

it so that opens up in a new tab

and I'm going to search for the icon I

want to use let's say I want to link out

to Facebook in that case I'd start

searching for Facebook it'll pop up all

these options here that aren't the non

I'll have so the ones that are colored

and are the ones I should be able to use

close out of this window and now I'm

going to create my button link so I'm

going to click on this button link
