Hey Michelle, As an addition to this tip.... I have added the "Email this Page" button to my web browsers which provide a button right next to the web address. Clicking on the button opens a new email with the page URL already included in the body. I use Google Chrome with the Email this Page add-in from Google, but there are others available and for other browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox etc and if you share a lot of web pages it can save you some time. Cheers Steve
