If you enter an accurate address into Google Map, clicking Street View normally fills the screen with a photograph of the house or building and its immediate surroundings. Use the navigation tools in the bottom-right corner to take a virtual tour of the neighborhood. Use the plus sign or mouse roller to zoom in for a close-up view of the location.

If you enter an approximate location and do not see a photo of the area in the panel, click the yellow Pegman icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen, and drag him onto the map to turn the view into Street View. Zoom in for a close-up view of house numbers or building names. Click the compass sign to rotate the view through 360 degrees, as the address you seek could be on the opposite side of the street. Click on the street, and click the arrow that appears on the map in order to move along the street, stopping and rotating the view by clicking and grabbing the screen and zooming in to check house numbers or building names.
