Default Showing URLs

I used to have Windows 98, now I have Windows XP. I used to see the URLs of websites when I put the mouse pointer on a link, now I don't.

When I'm making my webpages (very basic HTML), it was useful to check if I had the URLs correct by reading the URL on the bar at the bottom of the screen. Now I have to check on Notepad or Source to see if I have every URL correct, and it takes ages.

Can I get back the second bar at the bottom of the screen so I can see the URL when I put the mouse on a link?

(When answering, please bear in mind that I don't know much about any of this, so I need easy to follow step by step instructions - I really like my Dummies books!)

Wow, that was easy! Would have helped if I'd known it was called a Status bar! Thank you.
