Copying the Links

Have you ever visited a Web site that you just loved and you knew you had to share it with someone else? Maybe the site had an awesome picture on it or maybe even a video you wanted to share. Either way, how can you manage it so your friend can see the site? Well, there’s a couple of things you can do and they’re both so easy!

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 within it that you want to share with someone, right click it and choose Copy Shortcut or Copy Link Location. You can then go and paste that link in an e-mail or wherever you’d like (just like I explained above). You can also use this method to copy a photo link from a Web site. If the picture has a link included with it, you can right click it and choose the same options. Then go and paste it and everyone you send it to will be able to see the image. Pretty cool, huh?!
