Often times, my co-workers and friends will put cool or interesting URLs into their personal message as a way to share it with their buddies. Of course, I’m curious to see what it’s about … but sometimes those URLs are so long, I just don’t want to bother typing it into my browser!

If this has ever happened to you, here’s a tip: You can copy/paste the URL from the IM Window!

Here’s how …

1) Open an IM Window with your friend

2) Click their personal message at the top of the window, to show a text box

3) You can now select the URL with your mouse and use CTRL+C to copy it

4) Open your browser, then CTRL+V to paste it into the address bar


Of course, it’s not as easy as just clicking on a URL … but it’s easier than typing!
