Follow the link provided on the State of Connecticut Accessibility Subcommittee Tools page for Lynx.
On that page ( http://www.fdisk.com/doslynx/lynxport.htm ), scroll down until you see the words: "Here are my offerings". Under that is a link to a version that says "(last stable)"; select that link. Save the .zip file to your hard drive.
Create a new folder under your root hard drive; keep the folder name to under 8 characters (example, I used C:\lynx).
Use an unzipping tool (ex: Winzip) to extract the file to that folder. Allow the unzip to preserve folder names.
Find a file in the "Samples" folder named Lynx.bat. Copy and Paste that file into the parent lynx folder. Open that file in your text editor (ex: Notepad). Change all drive and folder references to your drive and folder where lynx now resides. Here is an example:
Original lynx.bat from Samples folder:
d:\win32\lynx.exe %1 %2 %3 %4 %5
My changed version in c:\lynx folder:
c:\lynx\lynx.exe %1 %2 %3 %4 %5
Now you have a bat file that you can execute to start Lynx. I created a shortcut to this bat and put it on my Start Menu.
