Copying Web Links

Have you ever visited a web site that you just loved and you knew you had to share it with someone else? Or maybe the site had a picture or a video you knew someone else would like to see. Either way, there are a couple of easy ways you can do this.

First, you can just do a simple copy and paste. Go up to the address bar in your Web browser, highlight the link, right click on it and choose Copy. Then go to your e-mail program and open up a brand new message box. Place your cursor in there, right click again and click on Paste.

The Web link will then appear in the e-mail. You can then write a little message to your friend and tell them to click on the link to see the site. If you want to paste the link in another program (like Word, for instance), just do the same exact thing.

Now, if you are on a site and you see a link on it that you want to share, right click it and choose Copy Shortcut or Copy Link Location. You can then go and paste that link in an email or wherever you’d like as explained above.

This method also works if a picture/photo on a website ┬áhas a link included – you can right click it and choose the same options and then simply go and paste it say into an email and everyone you send it to will be able to see the image.
