How to 'unwrap' a URL

  GG2 17:00 14 Oct 2004

A recent email I received at a URL included to allow me access to the particular area I needed in the site. Unfortunately it was 'inactive'
When I contacted the sender I was told I needed 'Notepad' which I know nothing about, or a text editor.
In simple terms how do I get this URL active from the email?
Many Thanks

have you tried copying and pasting into your address bar?

Thank you for your response, it seem's so simple when you know how. :-)

Hello again.
The problem of accessing 'links' incorporated in an email has agin become a problem.
I cannot open any of the links sent to me via an email, even copy and paste does not seem possible, and when I tried clicking 'help' top righthand corner of Hotmail, that too could not be opened.
Do you think I have 'deactivated' something on my computer?
As I am trying to work on a course I am doing, and therefore receiving many links to appropriate sites, I would be very grateful for any advice that might solve this problem.
Thanks again.
