Windows 7: Can I send hyperlink to other computer on network?

Can I send hyperlink to other computer on network?


I am running a Windows 7 network, with a notebook, and a desktop PC, connected thru a wireless router. The notebook is WiFi, and the desktop is Ethernet cabled.

Is there a way to send "snippets" such as a hyperlink, or something, between computers? I know that I can put the hyperlink in a file and save it, then access it from the other computer, but is there a way to "message" this text across the network, without actually having to save it?

Back at Pacific Bell, we used to call these "snaps" -- short bits of a message transmitted across the network.

Thanks for any help you can give, or insights as well.

Product FRED,

I appreciate the information, but I, unfortunately, have not become able to use anything except IE. I would also like to send other snippets, like a phone number, or something like that.

I'm using Live Calendar for that. Just paste whatever you want to Calendar and access it from any other computer. Easy, fast and simple.
