Simply highlight the link provided, right click it and with the drop down list that appears click Copy. We use this method since it proves to be a great hassle if we input the characters of the link one by one onto the address bar. After copying the link, we go into the process of pasting it. Go to the address bar of your web browser, right click the empty text field and with the drop down list that appears click Paste. When the link is successfully copied and pasted, hit Enter or click Go.
