How to Copy and Paste Links to Topics
« on: Monday 08 January 18 11:14 GMT (UK) »
I have been asked for help a couple of times this week on how to copy and paste to other threads on RootsChat, so here is some help for others who maybe wondering too.

If you are creating a link from a page on RootsChat look up to your tool bar, this will start with "http://www.rootschat.com/forumblahblah....." Place your cursor at the end of the address and with your mouse you drag along the address right to left whilst holding the left button down (on the mouse) this will highlight the address. Next click with the right button of your mouse and it will open up a box with some options select "copy". In your new post you can then use your mouse to put the cursor into the message, use the right button of your mouse to click in the post and this will then give you some options, one being "Paste" when you select paste it will then copy the link into the message. da da hopefully it should then appear
