It isn't clear from your email how you are trying to use lynx. Are you
calling to a unix shell account from home, or do you have lynx running
on a unix, Windows, or DOS machine at home? What version of lynx are
you trying to use? (Get version number by typing "lynx -version" at
the command prompt.)

For modern version of lynx, the "g" key is bound by default to the
"goto" function. Just type "g" and then type the URL. Lynx generally
comes with comprehensive help in the form of the lynx users guide. To
see it, type "H" or "?" from within lynx. Some sites may have lynx
intentionally configured to disallow "g". The "ESC" key isn't used
within lynx. For the active keybindings on your version of lynx, type
"K" from within lynx.
