Insert a hyperlink

You can’t fit the whole internet into an email message. Sometimes you need to add hyperlinks, so that people can click and go to websites or documents online.

  1. Select text in the message that you want to be the hyperlink text (which will appear as blue and underlined).

  2. Click Insert > Hyperlink.

    Hyperlink button on the Insert tab

  3. In the Address box, type or copy and paste the full web address for the site or document.

If you change your mind and don’t want to include the hyperlink anymore, you can always remove a hyperlink. You can also stop text from automatically turning into a hyperlink when you type web addresses in messages.
