IT geek to the rescue:
Assumes you are using internet explorer:
1. Highlight the address
1.1 either click on the address bar once and the address will be highlighted, or
1.2 start at either end of the address and hold down the left mouse button as you move the cursor to the other end of the address
2. The address should now have a black background where you have highlighted it.
3. Perform a copy/paste function:
3.1 either click the right mouse button once, and a little menu appears. Select copy. Go to the document you want to place the address in and click the right mouse button once and select paste. (address should show up, usually in blue color with underline.
3.2 or once address is highlighted, move mouse arrow to Edit (at top left of window), click once, menu drops down. Select copy. go to where you want to place the item and do the same procedure, except hit paste. Again, it should show up with a line underneath.
3.3 to use shortcuts for copy/paste you can use ctrl-c (copy) and ctrl-v (paste).
To test it, click on the pasted address once and it should open a browser window to that site. I note however that it does not work for me right here. (for another more technical geek to explain...)
