Pasted url's not Hyperlinked in Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Windows 7 with IE 9 I can paste text that includes url's into a forum reply, and the url's are automatically hyperlinked. Using Windows 10 with Edge, when I paste the exact same text the url's are not hyperlinked. Is there a setting I am missing? It is very inconvenient to convert each url into a hyperlink.

  • Its never worked for me either. I have to manually link them. I assumed a new security feature of Edge. Robert may know when he sees this.

  • What do you mean by "hyperlinked"?

  • What do you mean by "hyperlinked"?

    https://www.google.com/ == plain text

  • I could understand. I'll check if it would be reproduced.

  • I believe others in the  forums have the same problem, but don't bother to use the "Insert hyperlink" icon to convert them. I see many replies with links that are just text, so you need to copy them and paste into a browser.

  • Richard,

    Are you meaning plain text like http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/apps_windows_10-msedge

    Or, is your text html? Microsoft Edge forum on Microsoft Community.

    (This is just a test. I am not really suggesting asking on the Edge forum)

  • So, my test worked.

    I assume that you are using plain text.

    I did not know that would work on IE :)

    I always do stuff like <p>Hello,</p><p>I'd ask in the <a href="http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/apps_windows_10-msedge">Microsoft Edge</a> forum on Microsoft Community.</p>

    Of course, that gives the link the "Microsoft Edge" text instead of the long url.

  • In IE11 on Win 10 my test fails as well:

    If I am understanding right :)

    At least IE knows who I am.

  • In IE11 on Win 10 my test fails as well:.

    IE users have a quirk that they are used to:  add a space to the URL text you Paste

    Test
    
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/apps_windows_10-msedge  
    
    Test
    

    Unfortunately since Edge is fixated on "standards" we probably won't see quirks implemented for "compatibility."

  • That's funny. I suppose the luck just ran out.

  • Adding one or more spaces (and blank lines) didn't seem to help (I used Just Karl's Sandbox Forum test post, linked above). But if I past the HTML of what I want, that works and I get hyperlinks. This is good for standard stuff I paste from text files I have saved, but not for pasting links I find to answer question.

  • I am using Google Chrome and a year or more ago the links stopped being hyperlinked so since then I have to use link feature which I agree, is time consuming.

  • Create a hyperlink to a location on the web
    Select the text or picture that you want to display as a hyperlink. Press Ctrl+K. You can also right-click the text or picture and click Link on the shortcut menu. In the Insert Hyperlink box, type or paste your link in the Address box.
