Microsoft Office – Quick Way to Create Hyperlink to Open Document in Email Chain


I often find that I am working on a Microsoft Office document (spreadsheet, slideshow, word document, etc) while I have an email chain open in Outlook and I want to create a hyperlink in the email to the document that is open. What I do now is open Windows Explorer, navigate to the saved document and right-click drag into the email chain where I select "Create Hyperlink Here". Is there a way to accomplish this without having to open Windows Explorer and navigate to the containing folder? (Maybe something similar to the way proxy icons work on the Mac?)

Best Answer

You don't need to open Windows Explorer, but you still need to browse for that file.

Press "Ctrl+K" to open Insert Hyperlink window and browse for the file.
