I'm using windows 7 starter and have noticed that when I hover my mouse over a website link the website name does not appear like it does in Windows XP. does anyone know if there is a setting for this so that I can see the website? not that big of a deal, but, well, I am used to seeing that and would rather have that capability with Windows 7 if at all possible.

thanks for any help!

I'm now wondering if it's a setting in IE that I need to change....there's stuff that shows up at the bottom of the page when I'm on XP. like when you're blogging you can see how many new comments are loading, that kind of thing. I cannot see that stuff in Win 7.

anybody have any ideas? thanks!

That really depends on how the link is accessed. If it is a simple anchor tag, which is not all that common anymore, then the link will be available at the bottom. If it is a link accessed via a javascript call, it will not appear at the bottom.

so..........how do I find that out? and, once I do, and it's the javascript thing, is there no way to change that then?

Simple; if you hover over a link, then that means it is a simple HTML anchor tag. If you hover over a link and nothing is shown, then it is a javascript link. There is nothing you can do to change that. :huh:
