i just use copy and paste to paste the url into the email or "insert/hyperlink" and type or paste the address in the box.the reciever of the mail will see the full address which can be clicked on as a link.

"click here" only works on this forum.

if you drag and drop it into the email then it will just attach it to the mail and not appear in the text.

similarly if you right click the favorite there is no option to "copy shortcut" the url.if you select copy then paste this in the email,as above it will just make it an attachment.

as you want it in the text then.

you could always click the favorite and then copy and paste the address from the open web page that appears or right click the favorite/properties and copy and paste the url from the url box shown.
