Copy, Ctrl C, URL (web address)
Paste, Ctrl V, into body of e-mail.

Your e-mail recipient should see this as a highlighted and clickable address.

1 .. Highlight the URL address at the top of the web-page by a single left-click with the mouse cursor in the Address bar.
2 .. Then left-click on Edit in the menu bar.
3 .. Then left-click on Copy in the drop-down menu.
4 .. Open your email.
5 .. In the Body of your email right-click so that you can see the Cursor flashing
6 .. Now left-click on Paste in the box that appears and the URL Address will appear at the point where the cursor is flashing.

Don't think I have missed anything out ... LOL

Sometimes the link is inordinately long. If this happens, copy the link as described, and paste it in here to get a shorter link.
