Thanks Woolwell. My default browser (I think!!) is IE 11 - which opens Google. The PCWorld link makes no mention of Windows 8.1. I fear that I'm having big problems with my computer, since my desktop shortcuts don't work either - See my other post. Part of the problem, I'm sure, is that I'm very unsure of the 8.1 system to which I recently up-dated. At the moment, I'm "all at sea", and struggling to find my way around, and fearful of doing something that makes things worse! I've looked at System Restore, which on my old XP worked wonders - but on 8.1 it's all very different, and I'm reluctant to use it.
Sorry for this rather convoluted post - but I'd appreciate any help or advice! Thanks!
