Creating A Hyperlink In Gmail Tutorial

Creating A Hyperlink In Gmail Tutorial


– [Austin] My name is Austin, and I am the accessibility and assistive technology coordinator at Saint Mary’s College. Today, I’m going to be
providing a quick tutorial on how to use Gmail to add
hyperlinks to your emails. So in this sample email that I have, I’m writing about the
OneNote tutorial video, and you’ll notice that there’s a long link of where the video is located, and it takes up a full extra
line in the body of the email. I can shorten this by
selecting the YouTube link and clicking Copy or
Command + C, or Control + C, depending if you’re using a Mac or a PC. Once you copy the link, you
can then select the words that you want that
express what the link is. You wanna be descriptive,
and not say something like, click here, but something
that actually describes where the link is taking the user, because this is helpful for people who are using screen reading software. So I’m going to select OneNote Tutorial, and I’m going to go and
click on the link button. And I’m going to paste the link in, and I’m also just gonna
capitalize the tutorial. You can make any edits you want
to the text to display here, and I’m gonna have that
link there, and click OK. And now, you’ll see there is
the OneNote Tutorial link, and I could remove this whole link from the body of the text. So now, I’ve just made
my email a lot shorter, and more to the point. So you could use this feature. Again, all you need to do
is you just find the link that you wanna use,
and then, you’ll select on the text and just click
on that Insert Link button and you can add a link to it. Thank you for watching, and
I hope you have a great day.
