Tech Tip #3: Turn an Address into a Link

Posted by on January 31, 2012

As a working technology teacher, I get hundreds of questions from parents about their home computers, how to do stuff, how to solve problems. Each Tuesday, I’ll share one of those with you. They’re always brief and always focused. Enjoy!

Q: I get emails from friends with links to websites. How do they do that?

A: When you have a website you want to send to people, here’s what you do:

  • Copy the address located at the top of the screen (right click on it and select copy).

  • Return to your email (it’s probably sitting on the taskbar at the bottom of your screen) and paste the address into the message part of the email (using right-click paste, edit-paste, or the paste tool on the top toolbar).
  • You’re almost done–now push the space bar or enter after the address. That creates the link.
