  • The "Forward" entry in the Internet Explorer right-click context menu is the same as the Forward button I mentioned earlier - it's for navigating between pages.  It has nothing to do with forwarding eMail.  It's possible you're seeing a "Forward" entry in a menu in another application, and it's just an unfortunate re-use of the same term for two different meanings.

  • I'm always amazed that so many people who ask questions here assume the folks who are reading their questions can also read their minds.

    What application are you using?  Internet Explorer?  Help?  Adobe Reader?  Something else?

    Assuming you are referring to some button when you mention "forward", can you please be more specific about exactly which button you're referring-to?

    I'm sure that if you clarify your question you'll get meaningful answers.

  • You should spend some time with the Help facility and learn what the various controls are for.  The "Forward" button in IE, for example, isn't designed to take you to the "next page" of your article as you seem to think it should.  It is for navigating forward to a page that you have previously navigated back from.  Thus it will never be active unless you have used the "Back" button.

    The "next page" function you seek is very likely a link right on the page next to the article.

  • noel-thank you for answering my post. Once again I wasn't specific enough. The forward I am referring to is the forward to e-mail the article. My e-mail(Windows live) on roadrinner works fine .It's just the forwad for articles that seems to be de-acivated. I appreciate your help. Thank you
