    Hello folks I am an 84 year old lady & am hoping 1 of you bright young things can help me get back on track.
    I used to be able to go to my explorer find a page copy the link & then paste it onto my dasktop if it were 1 that I would use often. I seem to have lost my ability to do this.is there anything I can do to fix it?
    At the moment I can only open explorer,go to fav's,and clicl on the link there this can be such a pain, could I have done some wrong when I removed google? it was getting far to busy for this old Gal.... I hope there is a way to fix this many thanks in anticipation Patricia.
