I use the trial online 365 sharepoint and just get a team website. The home web page is located as far as /Pages/default.aspx and i wonder if there is a way to sorten that /Pages/ part? i want people could type shortly and access directly to web pages instead of long default url bla-bla-bla/Pages/default.aspx.

You can use SharePoint designer to create pages at the root instead of inside the Pages library, but I wouldn't recommend it as it's a lot more work.

But your users don't have to specify the /Pages/default.aspx part. They can just write and that'll bring them to

Ok, in fact they don't need to type you are right. As for use of designer capabilities i use online sharepoint so i don't have this choice. If nobody give me exact answer i will count your as answer to my question – Yurij73 Oct 21 '12 at 15:10
You should still be able to use SharePoint designer even though you're on SharePoint Online, unless it has been prohibited by your organisation – Per Jakobsen Oct 21 '12 at 15:18
