Windows 7: Cannot attach hyperlink to text in Windows Live Mail; option grayed.

Cannot attach hyperlink to text in Windows Live Mail; option grayed.

In using Windows Live Mail (W-7 Pro) I cannot attach a URL to selected text in the body of the email. I highlight the text and select INSERT/HYPERLINK. The HYPERLINK selection appears grayed out. No action of any kind is apparent. Thanks.

I don't use Windows Live Mail so this might not be the problem.

Be sure the format of the email you are composing is not "Plain Text", it should be HTML.

Just a wild guess!

I am a DOPE.

Mr. Bumpkin:
At first I actually wrote "Sorry this isn't the problem". (It couldn't be after doing this stuff daily for 20-25 years). Then I just did a quick check (for QA) before submitting.

Your intuition on something as simple as HTML Format was right on the money.

I hate to even admit being such a dube on my first post on this forum, but I guess I must in all honesty.

Thanks for your intuition, Mr. Bumpkin. Problem solved.

Sometimes it's the simple things that we stumble over.

Glad it's working now!
