    I've recently got windows 7. When you click on send a link it does not come underlined so it is not clickable I belong to diabetics daily and often I want to share a low carb recipe I've found but it too I can't make clickable. I've checked internet options and it says underline all links but it doesn't. How do I make my links clickable in windows 7 like they were in XP

    It might be a setting in your email application. When I click File, Send, Link by e-mail in my IE8 web browser, Outlook opens (the email application I use), and a link to the website I want to send is shown... however, it isn't underlined and isn't clickable (like you described).

    Now if I put my cursor at the end of the line where the link is displayed in Outlook, and press Enter... the link becomes underlined and is clickable.

    Some e-mails ....... like this forum too actually ....... you need to copy the link, then click the little "chain" (link) icon on the ....taskbar for want of the correct word, then paste it in the popup box for the link to work. That way in yahoo mail anyway. Maybe its that way in the website you want to post it in/on.

    not every site has a url link and the one I'm referring to doesn't. I'm not as concerned with e-mails because there is a hyperlink in my e-mail page. I'd just like every link to be clickable. I think it's a quirk with windows 7 and was wondering if anyone has a solution or a download that would fix it
