Links to websites outside of the Norton.com and Symantec.com domain

Hi Community,

Sometimes I notice that users give links to websites outside of the Norton Community just inserting it in words such as "here" or "this" or other similar ways.

 

IMHO, while they are perfect within Norton/Symantec's websites, when taking outside of them links should be given in full so that one knows in advance where he/she is going to, thus consciously deciding whether or not to follow the link.

 

 

FWIW

A good point Rainbow_2.

If it helps - I believe that if you put the mouse cursor over the link whether here, this, or whatever, the actual link address should appear in the bottom left of the screen.  Well it does for me in Chrome.

Thank you, Andmike! How embarrassing! 

 

…And also in IE and Firefox the link address appears doing as you say...

Just to add that for Internet Explorer you need to activate the Status Bar by right mouse clicking on one of the toolbars at the top of the browser and checking Status Bar.

I mention this because I believe this action is not needed with other browsers -- it's the default?

I regard it as essential if only for making sure that what I see is what I'm likely to get ....... especially on incoming email!

I guess so since I’ve it checked and it hasn't been me... ...obviously!
