How To Easily Email Web Page Links in Safari

Since the advent of internet, emailing has been one of the prime modes of communication. Be it personal messaging or professional communication, email is always at your service. What would you do if you like a picture on a certain web page? Save it to your hard drive and attach it to an email as an attachment? If you are using the traditional way, then the answer would be, yes.

However, with various users having various needs, various ways of communication are always being invented. One of them is emailing the web page link. With this option at your service, you no longer will have to copy-paste the content. All you have to do is to email the entire web page link. The recipient will get to view the entire page.

How to Email Web Page

There is a pretty simple procedure to go about emailing the page link. Let’s take a look at the steps you can carry out in the Safari browser. Click on the “File” Menu and move down to the link “Mail Link to This Page”. There is also a shortcut option of Ctrl+Shit+I to carry out the same steps.

Mail Link to This Page

Clicking on the above link, or using the shortcut key combination, will invoke the default email app. The details of the link will automatically be entered in the subject line. You will have to enter other details like the email address of the recipient in the “To…” field and the “CC …” field (the “CC …” field is optional).
