How to find addresses (URLs) for individual pages

The use of frames in designing this site means that the unique resource location or URL of the pages is not displayed in the address bar of your browser. We acknowledge that this is a weakness because it means you can't readily email people with the URL of a page that you find interesting.
Here is a solution (you can practise it while you are reading these instructions);

Internet Explorer
  • With the mouse cursor on the page click the right-hand mouse button
  • In the window that opens, scroll down to the bottom, where it says Properties
  • Left click Properties
  • The next window includes the Address (URL) - e.g. http://llrc.org/bbcbiasonchernobyl.htm
  • Select (or highlight) the whole of that little block of text (with left click and dragging over it)
  • Copy it (keep the mouse cursor over the selected text, right click and in the next window left click on Copy
  • Paste it wherever you need to.
Mozilla Firefox
  • Right click
  • On the resulting menu scroll down to This frame and left click
  • On the resulting menu click on View frame info
  • The top line of the new menu will be Address:
  • Select (or highlight) the whole of that little block of text (with left click and dragging over it)
  • Copy it (keep the mouse cursor over the selected text, right click and in the next window left click on Copy
  • Paste it wherever you need to.
Do let us know about other browsers.
