Tech Tip – I find myself typing in URLs every day. This might be in Notes, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, TextEdit, or Mail. But I don’t just want the URL to be there, I want it to be an active link. To accomplish this I can use the CMD + k key combination.
To make any text in one of the Apps mentioned above a link, just highlight the text in the document, then type CMD + k on the keyboard. This will open up a dialog box (as seen above) where you can enter the desired link. Type or paste in the full URL, then tap OK or hit return and the link has been created.
I use this on an almost daily basis. It is a fast way to create a link in your documents or Notes. The dialog box varies a little between applications giving more options in some (like Keynote) but the key sequence in all allows you to create a link.
This works for other applications too. For instance, I tried CMD + k while typing this article into the WordPress website editor and it works there too. Try this with your favorite Apps to see just where it works.
