Do you work in an office that uses Windows? Often find yourself emailing people locations of files on a server? Try this shortcut:

  1. Open the folder that has the file you want.
  2. Start a new email.
  3. Use the right mouse button (not the usual left button) to drag the file to the email window.
  4. When you release the button you’ll see a contextual menu–choose “Create Hyperlink Here.”

The file path will paste into the email, and the recipient can click to open the file directly.
