You need to highlight the url and copy, then open a new window in your web browser and paste the url into the address space and click enter. The page should then open. if not check that you have copied all of the address and correct.
It is best not to post personal emails on open forums. If you want to share your email its is safer to use a private message.
Use the same procedure to copy and paste into your email address bar
Cheers

That's just it I can't highlight the message as when I try to put the arrow on the message I just get the cursor bar /message writing bar. Clicking on it does nowt . John

Hi John
It's a two finger trick. Put the cursor at the start of the URL, press Ctrl key and hold whilst moving the cursor to the end of the URL. Release the Ctrl key. Press and hold the Ctrl key and the C key. Release both.
Move the cursor to the address bar (I suggest you open a new page) and press and hold the CTRL key and the V key. Bingo you should have copied the URL. Hit enter and the web page should open. You can practice the copying and pasting anywhere so perhaps try it on the same page to see it working.
Hope this helps
Dave

Hi, or
Put the cursor at the front of the address so the 'writing cursor' appears.
Press 'CNTRL+SHIFT and END together'.
The address should now be highlighted in sort of orange. Copy to address box in browser. CNTRL+C --> CNTRL+V
If necessary (too much or too little copied) adjust in browser.

Just to make everyones lives a little easier, URL's are now being automatically made into hyperlinks which can be clicked on...

No more copying/pasting required!

Thanks for all the advice boys but it looks as though it is not going to be needed now
