This way they do not need to scroll through pages of website text in order to get directly to the point on the site that you want to share.

1. On a PC, highlight the section you want someone to start at or read within the text, right-click, and select “copy link to highlight.” On a Mac, click your trackpad and the Ctrl button on your keyboard at the same time then select “copy link to highlight.”

2. This generates a URL link ending with a # symbol, which you can then share with others. Upon clicking the new URL that you sent to someone, they are taken directly to the highlighted portion of the website. This is especially handy with long articles and you want someone to focus on a specific part of the article. You can also save the link so that you can go back to it later at the place you highlighted.
