Link to a post of a thread

I hope this is not a stupid question, but even if it is, I don't know the answer, so I have to ask: how can be found the url of certain post in a thread, to can indicate the post instead of the whole thread when I want to add a link to a post? I mean that when in this thread jsmorley added the link to the RainRegExp download page, when the link opens, it opens in a way that the RainRegExp title is above, I don't have to scroll down, as I have to scroll if should been using the url of the page (http://docs.rainmeter.net/tips/webparser-debugging-regexp instead of http://docs.rainmeter.net/tips/webparser-debugging-regexp#RainRegExp). So I'd like to add that sufixes (I don't know if this is the proper expresion), which indicates the post in a thread. How can it be added?

If you are on a particular post in a forum thread, there is a little arrow-in-a-circle icon next the topic subject in that post. If you click it, it will set the URL in your browser to a URL for that specific post in the thread, which you can copy and paste.

In the manual, all options and most "headings" can be CTRL-Clicked to set the URL in your browser to the URL to the page and the #Anchor to the option or heading, which again you can copy and paste.
