Working with Links

Follow these simple step-by-step instructions for working with links using MS Sharepoint Designer.

1. Open File

In MS Sharepoint Designer, open the file you'd like to edit. This example uses the Wireless page (wireless.asp) file in the website at /computersupport as if we were going to link to a PDF file.
