Using Simple Links

These link to most web sites/web pages. When you right-click (or tap) on the open desktop and choose Create Simple Link, you will receive a form on which you enter the destination url (address) and a Title for the link. (Advice: Pick a mnemonic Title which will help you identify the link later- or, more exactly, remind you what is important or relevant to you about that destination.) Then, optionally, enter a Description- perhaps the official title of the page or document taken from the destination, or other information which identifies the link’s relevance or at least helps you to remember it. (Descriptions and other link meta-data are searchable later, if needed.) The link will be created with its own orange-coloured icon but you can click the icon field and select a different one if you wish. We normally recommend size 16 icons for regular links. (Headings over groups of links could use the size 24 icons.) You can also edit the font if you wish.

  • Making a Simple Link from the destination itself. If you have the Login Pilot installed then when on most internet pages if you right-click the page you will see a context menu where you can select "Copy for Netsso". Click that to automatically pick up address data for the page and then right click your Netsso desktop and choose "paste from Page" and the link will be made. It takes seconds and makes normal Simple links, which you can then edit as described above.
  • On some types of pages, "Copy Link for Netsso" may be presented as a Netsso icon "N" in the tool bar. Click that and achieve the same result. For Pdf documents it may be necessary to copy the document URL and make the link manually as described above.
