       Closing of the application should result in “Are you sure?” message.             
       Behaviour for starting application more than once must be specified.             
      Try to start application while it is loading             
       On every application, if application is busy it should show hour glass or some other mechanism to notify user that it is processing.             
      Normally F1 button is used for help. If your product has help integrated, it should come by pressing F1 button.             
      Minimize and restoring functionality should work properly             
    Compliance for each window in the application               
      Title of the window and information should make sense to the user.             
        If screen has control menu, use the entire control menu like move, close, resize etc.             
       Text present should be checked for spelling and grammar.             
       If tab navigation is present, TAB should move focus in forward direction and SHIFT+TAB in backward direction.             
      Tab order should be left to right and top to bottom within a group box.             
         If focus is present on any control, it should be presented by dotting lines around it.             
      User should not be able to select greyed or disabled control. Try this using tab as well as mouse.             
        Text should be left justified

       All tab buttons should have distinct letter for it.             
      Window caption for each application should have application name and windows name.             
  8 Web Usability Testing (Black Box Testing)              
    Accessibility: Site Load-time should be reasonable.            
      Site font size and spacing between lines should be easy to read.            
      Carefully use of Flash & Add-ons in website.            
      Proper ALT Tags should be used for all images present in website.            
      If any internal link is broken then website should be presented with 404 error page or Not Found page.            
    Identity:              
      The placement of website logo should be at prominently place like right top side of the page.            
      Proper tagline should be used which clearly states the purpose of the website.            
      Company and Contact Information must be clearly mentioned which helps to identify the company information.            
    Navigation              
      Main Navigation should be easy to find, read and use. If more than navigations are used then make sure that user should clearly understand why multiple navigations are used.            
      Clear & Concise navigation labels should be used in website.            
      Reasonable use of links and button in website so user will not confuse while navigating the pages.            
      As a common practice the Company Logo should be linked to website Home page.            
      The Site Search facility should be present on the website and make sure that the Site Search button simple and easy to access like top right of the page.            
    Content              
      Headings should be clear and descriptive and SEO use of proper heading tags like H1, H2 etc.            
      Make sure that the critical content should be displayed on the first screen in average screen resolution i.e. 1024×768.            
      Use of consistent font styles and colors across the website help user to understand that they’re still on your site.            
      Use of user friendly and meaningful keywords for URLs will help both user and search engines to understand navigation.            
      Meaningful and self explanatory titles (in the <TITLE> tag) should be used for pages. These titles are used by search engines to display in the Search result by search engines. If the improper titles are used then user will skips the your website pages link and proceed further.
