I am of the opinion that were it not for the TV show
called "Access Hollywood," half the people in this
country would probably not know the word "access"
if they saw it.

If your instructions are written at a level that requires
you to tell your readers to use IE to get to an ftp site,
I would forget about "open" vs. "access" and tell them
to type the URL into the IE address bar and press the
"Enter" key.

Again, I'm seeing different variations here. If I want to direct users
to , would I
tell them to open that URL or access it?

I probably just advised them to "open" IE, so should I use "open" again
so soon, or should I tell them to "start" IE, and "open" this web
