You are actually talking about 2 different things. Request.QueryString works
only in Asp.Net and refers to the Url Query String. If you had a url like
www.mysite.com?id=2, then id=2 would be the querystring, so you would do
System.Console.WriteLine( Request.QueryString["id"] ); and the output would
be 2. This will not work in a regular program because there is no url
