How to surf the web even if Internet Explorer is disabled

Ever find 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? If that PC is running Windows XP, there’s a good chance you can still visit coolaery.co.nr (or other sites if that sort of thing appeals to you).

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. Basically what you’re looking at is Internet Explorer 6 inside a help window, but this version of the program isn’t quite as smart as IE6. It won’t automatically add the http:// for you. And of course, there’s no bookmarking feature.
