You can create a table which contains Hyperlink field(s), this filed you can then populate with hyperlinks to your web pages (by creating a Form for this table)

Yes, I've done that, but it displays the hyperlink itself.  What I want is the page to display.  I know that there is a control called Microsoft Web Browser that can be embedded on a form, but I do not know how to interact with that control.

It would be fine also if there is some macro or code that reached out grabbed the url and saved it to disk and then the link referred to the saved file.  That's my ultimate goal.

Regards,
Jim

After you add your ActiveX control (Microsoft Web Browser) create a button and give it the following code.
You could easily modiy this to be a select box the reads the URL text from your table on the selection onchange event.
