Address Box, NOT SEARCH BOX!!!!

You wouldn't BELIEVE the number of people who call me and don't know where their address bar is. It is one of the scourges I face on at least a weekly basis. I give them a web address like www.joingotomeeting.com and tell them to put it in the address bar? Well, they go and stick it in the search box. I only know this because as they read to me the resultant page it's full of various websites and advertisements.
So for those of you challenged in this area, here are some screenshots of exactly where the address bar is:

And to think someone over at PC World is predicting the end of tech support. ROFLOL. Not as long as the Baby Boomer crowd is still around.
