So you’ve come across the coolest website ever, a new date for the end of the world or a piece of juicy celeb gossip you simply must share. Well Mac OS X allows you to send a web link almost instantly.
With other leading email services such as Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo etc sending a web link can be a lengthy and process. Usually involving copy and pasting, or writing an anchor text, highlighting and then inserting the link to create a html code… urgh!
Mac Mail makes it so much easier. A few clicks of your mouse and your friends will be filled in with your latest discovery.
Take these simple steps to send a web link...
This method should work in all internet browsers but always works with Apples very own Safari.
1.) Start by highlighting the website address URL in the browsers address bar. You can do his by either clicking and dragging your cursor over the text to highlight it or by simply clicking on the box with one click.
2.) Next navigate your way to the browsers toolbar and click on the name ie Safari.
3.) A drop down dialog menu will appear. Scroll down and pick ‘Services’.
4.) In the next menu pick ‘Mail’ and then ‘Send Selection’ from the hierarchical menu that follows.
Mac OS X will automatically rev-up up Mail (if the app is not already open of course). It then composes a new email ready for you to fill out the required fields such as the recipients address, subject and perhaps a little message.
