There are addresses in PC Advisor such as tinyurl.com/26dd7q. If I type this in the address bar nothing happens. What am I doing wrong, please.

Sorry should read "Try This Link"

Thank you. I'll try and make sense of it

When I typed (without the spaces) w w w . tinyurl.com/26dd7q
in my address bar and clicked on 'go' (or pressed the return/enter key on my keyboard)
I got Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 page on microsoft site (without the spaces) h t t p : // w w w .microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=333325fd-ae52-4e35-b531-508d977d32a6&displaylang=en

that's why tinyurl is used - it saves all that typing :)

I believe that you could be just typing in tinyurl.com/26dd7q into the address bar, that wont work.

you have to keep

click here. BEFORE tinyurl.com/26dd7q. (no spaces),

for this to work.

Ignore the click here in the last post (that was this web site converting h*t*t*p:/*/w*w*w. into a link).

(remove the *'s) and you will see what I mean.
