Have you ever found yourself sitting in front of a computer that’s been locked down by an overzealous IT administrator who won’t let you install any software or even open Internet Explorer or Firefox? Let me show you how to access the net using a simple trick.
All you have to do is launch a Windows application like Calculator, and then click the Help button. Under Help, click “Help Topics,” which will bring up a help window. Next, all you have to do is right click on the title bar and select “Jump To URL.” Now you can type in any web address you like, but make sure to include “http://” at the beginning.It doesn’t work for filtered networks (schools ect..).
