    WLM 2012 Won't Display A "Clickable" Link


    I'm new at this Win 10 version 1909 thing so be patient. :)
    I'm using Chrome with WLM 2012. My trouble is for instance: When I go to YouTube and watch a short video clip that I want to send to friends in email, I highlight the web address and press Ctrl + C. I open a new message in email and press Ctrl + V and the link appears BUT it's not a link that my friends can just click on. I know they could just copy/paste but I'm sure I can make it easier for them? The problem only seems to exist in email, I can copy/paste in other places. I'm sure there is a text box somewhere that I need to check. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks: Dave

    I don't have WLM 2012 but

    Once you paste in link try hitting return / enter with cursor at end of link. In Outlook this turns something that looks like a link into a functioning link.

    If that doesn't work look through the WLM tools and buttons. You are looking for something that looks like a chain link or titled insert hyper link.

    Here is what it looks like in gmail. Pretty sure WLM will have similar functionality.

    and a picture is worth a thousand words.

    YouTube

    When you click on hyperlink button you should be able to just paste in results. Watch start of address, don't want http:// followed by https://. Might have to blank out what they provide and then paste in your results.

    It is the same in the Windows 10 Mail App which comes with Windows 10
    Insert > Link.
