Some sites or pages on the web have very long and I mean long addresses so by copying that address from the address bar,found top left of the page, here it will be shortened to a more manageable length.Great if you need to write it down.

I try to show you.

Long address: https://www.google.co.uk/search?sourceid=navclient&aq=1&oq=Windfarms&hl=en-GB&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4ASUMenGB485GB485&q=windfarms+in+scotland&gsupl=0l0l0l11796lllllllllll0&aqi=g4&pbx=1

Short address:

http://tinyurl.com/8s6kuaj

They will take you to exactly the same page. Try it.

PS: i will not know if this has worked until I have clicked on post.

Unsurprisingly with PCA it did not work.But if you copy the whole of the long address, both the blue and the black sections it will get you to the page I mentioned.
