My *personal* preference is this format:

1. Open your Web browser and enter http://hellothere. Hit the "Enter" key to accept this URL, and the "Welcome to Your Life" page displays. You are now connected to the "Your Life" server.
2. Click on the "Log into Your Life" link, and the "Enter Network Password" dialog box displays.
3. Enter your user name and password in the appropriate text boxes and hit the "Enter" key to accept. Your personal page, showing your various "Life" folders, displays. If you do not have a user name and/or password, click on the link to e-mail your administrator in order to obtain this information.

Put more simply (and generically):
1. Do A. Then do B. C happens. You are now in D location.
2. Do E. Now you'll see F.
3. Do G. Then do H. I happens. If I doesn't happen for some reason, do J to take care of the problem.

In this example, my "do" equates to your "click" or "enter". I don't list them as separate steps; I say to do them, and then I say what to expect before moving on to "do" the next thing.

Again, just personal preference, but I hope it helps.

We're having a meeting this AM to discuss revisions to
our Style Guide. At the moment, "Click Enter" and
other small finalizing actions must be listed as a
separate step.
