Right-click the topic in the TOC and copy the shortcut
Internet Explorer 9.
I've got the pointer in the topic.
Right-clicking displays the following shortcut menu.
When I click "Create shortcut" (the only option with "shortcut" in the name), the following message appears.
After clicking Yes, the shortcut is on the desktop. The user must then right-click the URL, select Properties, copy the URL from the Web Document tab, paste it into an email, and send it.
Is this the process as you understand it?
No, just hover your mouse over the topic in the TOC – you should see a tooltip-like message appear at the bottom with the URL; right-click and copy the URL, paste wherever
Sorry, Jeff. I managed not to see that you said to click the topic in the TOC.
Got it now.
Thanks very much.
Another way would be to add an email link to topics. Your consultants could then click that and it would create an email with the full path in it. See Snippets on my site.
It would be available to all users but I don't see that as a problem, they may want to email topics back to you or to colleagues.

Thanks, Peter. This was very useful. Our team will discuss whether to implement any of the methods you describe.
