    How can I make links clickable in my emails.


    On Win.10 my email links are 'blued-out' & clickable. However, on my Win.8.1 they are not, is there anyway I can remedy this. It gets to be a pain to keep copying & pasting into a browser to see what the link is all about. Appreciate any suggestions.

    It just so happens I posted a new freeware utility on my page that allows you to select non clickable urls for launch or any text for search via Bing, in one of up to 8 browsers. I call it BingThing. It is sort of along the idea of Browser Select and Browser Chooser except it does not put anything in the Registry. You just use a hotkey to call it up.

    ( Edit: by the way, I use Browser Select so the two can peacefully coexist. Each does a slightly different thing. )

    Setting up the hotkey requires a bit of preparation as the included script is in AutoHotkey. But you could use any hotkey utility to launch my program as long as it can add the selected text to the command line.

    If you want to check it out download BingThing.zip from my page here:
