How to Insert a Hyperlink in an Email

30 04 2021

Step One:

Compose a new email. In the body of the email, name (type in) what you are trying to link. I like to give it a title so the recipient has a general idea of what they are opening.

Step Two:

Go to the webpage and find the specific content you are trying to link to. Highlight the entire web address and hit CTRL C or right click and select copy.

Step Three:

Go back to the email you are composing. Highlight the link title you have typed in and click on the link bottom at the bottom left of the window.

Step Four:

Step three will bring up an edit link window. Select the box labeled – To what URL should this link go? – Then hit CTRL V or right click and select paste.

Step Five:

Once your web address is pasted click OK.

Step Six:

The link is set up and you are done. However I recommend you double check the link will go to the correct site. To do this you can left click on your newly created hyperlink. It will pull up a small window below. Left click on the web address.

Step Seven:

Step six will pull up the web page you are trying to link to. If it does not, your hyperlink did not work. Go back to step six and click on “change”. This will pull up the edit link window again. From here you can follow step 2, 4 and 5 to try to reinsert the hyperlink.
