How to create an email with a hyperlink

This week we’re going to look at how you can use a hyperlink to create a pre-addressed email.

You could use this if you had a budget in Excel or a report in Word and wanted to make it easy for people to contact the person who created it.  When you click on the hyperlink, it opens a new message with the To: and Subject field filled in.

To create a hyperlink that creates an email:

  1. Select the text you want to hyperlink
  2. On the Insert tab in the Links group, click on the Hyperlink button (or just press Ctrl+K)
  3. In the Insert Hyperlink dialog box, select E-Mail Address in the Link to: panel
  4. In the E-Mail Address: text box, enter an email address
  5. In the Subject: text box, enter a subject for the message
  6. Click on OK

You can use this feature in Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint.
