What is "Permalink"?

I hit the link that appeared, but I don't know what it did.
What does Permalink do? Thanks in advance.

  1. Click to Upload a photo (10 MB limit)
  1. If you want to have a link directly to a specific post, right click (or CTRL-click with a Mac) on Permalink, and "copy link location".

    1. I regret that I don't really understand the explanation. And, when I tried it, it doesn't work .... When I right click, I do not have an option to "copy link location" Thanks for trying to help me though.

        On my PC w/ WIN XP it says "Copy Shortcut" not "Copy Link Location".

          Sorry about the confusion. What you see depends on which browser you're using. Mac / Windows results might also be different.

          Firefox users will see an option for "Copy link location"
          Internet Explorer users will see an option for "Copy Shortcut", as sel noted.
