How to Create an Email Button in a Microsoft Word Form

Save

Microsoft Word has a hyperlink function that lets you create a button to open a Web page or an email client. When you point the hyperlink to an email address, Word opens the default email software installed on the reader's computer. This is useful if you want to include an email option in your customers' documents.

  • Click the Windows "Start" button and select "All Programs." Click "Microsoft Office," then click "Microsoft Word" to open the word processing software.

  • Click the "Office" button and click "Open." Double-click your Word document file name to open it on your computer.

  • Use the mouse to highlight the text you want to use for your email button. Right-click the highlighted text and select "Hyperlink" to open the button wizard.

  • Click the option labeled "E-mail Address" in the "Link To" option section. This switches the wizard options to an email template. Type the "To" email address where you want to send the email and type a subject in the "Subject" text box.

  • Click "OK" to save your settings. Notice the text switches to a hyperlink button. Click it to test the new settings. Notice your email client software opens.
