Google Chrome: Add a Send Link Button to the Bookmarks Bar

Most browsers provide you with a way to easily email a link to the page you are currently viewing. When clicked, your default email application will produce a new message with the link in the body and the page title in the Subject line and the To field left blank for you to address. This functionality is missing from Chrome, but can easily added by creating a button on the Bookmarks bar.


1. Open Chrome.

2. Right-click the Bookmarks bar and select Add Page.

3. In the Name textbox, input the word Send Link.

4. In the URL textbox, input the following:
javascript:location.href='mailto:?SUBJECT='+document.title+'&BODY='+escape(location.href);

5. Make sure that the Bookmarks bar folder is selected and click OK.

or just drag this link to your Bookmarks bar: Send Link.

    This is awesome, thanks!!

    • Laurie

      Excuse me for bumping this to the top of the comments, but it is fairly important:

      Even though the original script is great it should be modified to:
      javascript:location.href=’mailto:?SUBJECT=’+escape(document.title)+’&BODY=’+escape(location.href);

      The addition of the extra ‘escape’ function around the document.title ensures that the script works if the webpage’s title contains a ‘special’ javascript character such as &.

      You can test this by trying the original script with the webpage http://b2evolution.net/index.php (which fails due to an & in the title). This modified script fixes the problem for this and probably many other webpages.

      • Ben

        > Hi there, I try the original string, i.e. without the extra escape and it works for most websites. One exception is http://www.benelab.org which opens up a new email with the correct subject, but no link in the body.

        When I try your string, by adding the extra escape and brackets, it does not work. Nothing happens when I try the shortcut, even on sites that worked with the original string. Please revise your comment or fix it. Thanks.

      • Mike

        Is there a way to open this in a new tab instead of the same window?

        This loads the same thing on the current page as well as opening the new tab, defeating the purpose:

        javascript:window.open(location.href=’mailto:?SUBJECT=’+escape(document.title)+’&BODY=’+escape(location.href));

        I would just + the bookmark, but when I do this the parent’s values aren’t copied into the correct fields (not copied at all).

      • Jim

        what do you input between the ? and the word “SUBJECT”? I am unable to start a new line in the url box. I’m hoping that is my problem because it doesn’t work for me (no email opens up). thanks

      • Lars

        Please make sure you use the proper ‘ sign, not ´ or ` or whatever people come up with. Only ‘ works. The code has to be:

        javascript:location.href=’mailto:?SUBJECT=’+escape(document.title)+’&BODY=’+escape(location.href);

        (Also make sure to add in your personal e-mail address between “mailto:” and “?”.)

  • http://www.tech-recipes.com/ Rob Rogers

    I’ve noticed that people have been having mixed results with trying to do this. I would recommend using an application called ChromeMailer to easily set Gmail as the default for all mailto: links. It requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.

    Hi, first I apologize for my ignorance, I really do. I have followed the instructions as above. I thus have “send to” link in the bookmark folder . Here is the ignorant part: I click on it and nothing happens. No form pops up. I tried to highlight some text then click on send to, still nothing….I highlight the address bar and click on send to, nothing….

        Looks like there’s a bit in Rob’s code that doesn’t appear in Laurie’s. A combination of

      Sorry. I did find it . The name is completely different. It’s called favorites manager. And it’s a new favorite you want to create called “send link”

    The link button worked great, after I installed Gmail notifier to get it open in gmail instead of Outlook.

    AWESOME… I would really like to use Google Chrome as my default browser, but the lack of this function always drove me back to IE or Firefox… how frustrating… and your option to just drag the link to the Bookmarks was incredibly simple…thanks

  • Laurie

    Almost gave up Chrome purely because this feature is missing so tried this and it seemed to work fine for most sites.

    But, when I wanted to use it seriously for the first time it does not put the link in the body.

    The site that is failing is http://b2evolution.net/index.php – can anyone tell me why the script doesn’t work with this site?

    • Mike

      I don’t know anything about javascript, but I found the link is included int he email body if I delete the subject line part.

      • Laurie

        Thanks for that – I have just started on javascript in the last week and your post made me look at the title of the failing website http://b2evolution.net/index.php which contains an ‘&’ (ampersand) character. This causes the rest of this script to fail as ‘&’ is a special character in javascript and would need to be converted to & for the script to work properly.

        This implies that any website containing one of javascript’s special characters (http://www.w3schools.com/jS/js_special_characters.asp) will probably cause this script to fail.

        Any more experienced (then myself) javascript programmers out there who know how to fix this?

        • Laurie

          Fixed it – looking at the original script I saw the ‘escape’ function being applied to the link. If the escape function is also applied to the title the script then seems to works perfectly.

          So if the script is modified to:
          javascript:location.href=’mailto:?SUBJECT=’+escape(document.title)+’&BODY=’+escape(location.href);
          it should work on all websites.

          Thanks again Mike for getting me to look in the right place.

  • Anonymous

    Couldn’t get it work with Gmail despite repeated tries, even with Gmail Notifier. I finally unclicked the option to use Gmail for mailto: requests, it launched Outlook Express, and when I reclicked the box in Notifier, it started working with Gmail.

    I was surprised Google didn’t incorporate this feature to begin with. It is something people use so much as part of their internet experience. I know i use it 5 times a day, at least. and even though it is only 2 or 3 steps to open the email program, copy&paste the page title into the subject line and then the same with the the link, this is much much faster ;-) tx!!

    • Laurie

      From what I can make out the extension you mention only works for GMAIL and not for other mail clients (Outlook, Windows mail etc). There is an extension at https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/dbeoemfhkdniadbojeencpkgmobndpai that is suppose to work with all clients but I haven’t tried it out as I don’t install extensions that require access to all of my data!
      I’m really surprised that Google haven’t integrated this function into Chrome yet.

    I’m having a very, very, very tough time  with this!!!  I am very frustrated with all this rigmarole. On Internet Explorer I right-clicked, clicked on Send To and then clicked on email.  (I think it was something like that.)  Besides that I almost always used ‘send page’ – that suited my purpose most of the time.  When will this will be fixed/changed. I’m one of those who is seriously thinking of dumping Chrome.

  • Luke

    Rigmarole? Just drag the ‘send link’ in the article to your toolbar and its done. After that it’s one button click to work (2 less than IE as you say) How exactly is that rigmarole?

    I just encountered this problem today as I haven’t been using Chrome very long. Thank you so much for your solution for adding a Send Link button to the Bookmark bar. And particularly for setting it up so I could just drag it rather than trying to correctly enter the code!!

  • http://www.mesoscopia.net Carlitos

    There is something crazy going on with “document”. It may not be handling the “pointer” very well.

    Nevertheless, to make the link work you can use:

    javascript:location.href=’mailto:?SUBJECT=’+document.title+’&BODY=’+location.href;

  • Jester

    This worked initially but today I find that my default email app, Outlook, now opens but with the following text in the Subject line, &BODY=about:blank

    The URL which used to display in the body no longer appears.

    I right clicked the “Send Link” entry on the bookmark bar and looked at the contents of the entry via the “edit” option and it is exactly as before.

    Playing detective for now.

  • Jester

    I’ve found this works on some sites and not all. It failed on a New York Times article but worked on some wilderness food web sites I just visited. Then while preparing to post my findings I tried to send the link from this site and it failed.

    It does not appear that length of URL affects ability to send the link so some other setting must be stepping on this process.

    Jester

  • Jester

    I continue to find random success and failure using the original code, Laurie’s “double escape” version and even Carlitos recent suggestion.

    I’m back using Laurie’s version and it failed on http://livewellnetwork.com/Motion/7624634

    Thank you for this article! This is a real time saver!

    Also, if you mainly send yourself links and want to save time by making the Send Link bookmark automatically include your email address (or any email address) as the recipient of the link, modify the code as follows:

    javascript:location.href=’mailto:youremailaddress@gmail.com?SUBJECT=’+document.title+’&BODY=’+escape(location.href);

    Just replace youremailaddress@gmail.com with your actual email address. Leave everything else in there before and after. Oh and I couldn’t get Laurie’s code to work so I just edited the author’s code. Thanks!

  • Mike K

    Thank You!

    Thanks Rob. I dragged your link and it works just great! My question is why Google wouldn’t set this up or at least provide some help on it?

  • Steven

    If the webpage does not have a title (ex. link to PDF doc) the script will break and put the URL in the subject and leave the body blank. I added a if else conditional to correct this. Replace ‘Enter your subject’ to change the default backup email subject.

    javascript:location.href=’mailto:?SUBJECT=’+((document.title) ? escape(document.title) : ‘Enter your subject’)+’&BODY=’+escape(location.href);

  • Jackie

  • Loni

    This works well only with English websites.
    When I want to send Hebrew or Russian websites, I get gibberish in the Subject field.
    For example:
    ׳”׳•׳“׳¢׳” ׳¢׳œ ׳¢׳“׳›׳•׳Ÿ ׳₪׳¨׳˜׳™׳ ׳׳™׳©׳™׳™׳ – ׳˜׳•׳₪׳¡ ׳‘׳œ/900

    Does anyone has a solution for multilingual support?

  • Mama Bee

    Just doesn’t work for me on my Windows 7 Google Chrome. Really disappointing (and weird) that GC didn’t include the send link feature. GC has, by now, had enough complaints that it should have an easy download to fix the issue. So, I’m back to regular Google.

  • Nim

    Thanks so much! Like many people have spent ages trying to find this function in Chrome so this is really really helpful. I hope Google notices and credits you for it.

  • Jason

    Real cool solution!!

    • Kevin

      I dragged the link to the bookmarks bar, and when I used it it took me to my Hotmail log-in page, except it opened an Internet Explorer page to do it. Shouldn’t it stay in Chrome? I don’t have IE as my default browser (Firefox is). Do I have to set horme as my default browser for this to work?

  • Mark in VA

    A note to those for whom it opens a composition window, but “doesn’t work”. If your system is case sensitive, you’ll need to change the code to have “subject” and “body” in lower case. I.e.,

    javascript:location.href=’mailto:?subject=’+escape(document.title)+’&body=’+escape(location.href);

    Once I made the above change, it started to work properly.

    Also, you can’t disable javascript, but I doubt that’s anyone’s problem :)

  • http://trythis Angelo

    javascript:location.href=’https://mail.google.com/mail/?view=cm&fs=1&tf=1&source=mailto&su=’ +SUBJECT=’+document.title +’ &body=’+escape(location.href);

    I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble. You’re incredible!
    Thanks!

    Hej.Jeg har før brugt google Crome ,men nu er det slut.Man kan ikke spille på kom og vind uden at den fryser og man kan heller ikke fastholde Nodea Netbank .Så se nu at få det rettet.

  • Mike

    Thanks for the link but when I hit the “send link” button that was created it just populates the subject line with name of the web-site but does not provide the URL in the body of the email. What am I doing wrong? I am using outlook. Thanks.

    Does not work with office 2013???

    I thought I was already using chrome, this is different and since I’m no expert; I’m finding somethings difficult to comprehend. Can I possibly keep the instructions where I can see them while implementing things like the send button added to bookmarks?

    Thx for this – works great.

    Have to laugh at how “hard” Chrome makes it to acknowledge email other than GMAIL.

    I am having a hard time looking for a send button at the top of my chrome page so what ever i find on the web i can send it to any where or anyone and to save stuff in my favorite box and can view anytime I want to but. I happened to stumble on how to place my Central Pacific Band and Fruit Trees to buy fruits on the bar at the top of the page and that’s what I want to keep it easy access to. Help doesn’t have that listed down so I can find it with ease. Google windows no problem i can find it easily but I had to update my browser and so I have all of this issues to ask.

    Can I just say what a comfort to uncover someone
    that truly understands what they’re talking about on the web. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people have to look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you’re
    not more popular because you certainly possess the gift.

    This button used to work. Thanks.

    However, after I updated to chrome v 30.0.15 on windows 7, the button just stopped working.I clicked on the button, it now will not open an email blank at all. Nothing happens. It is a dead button.

  • Bonnie (“~)

    HOW Cool! Thanks!
    I had right clicked on the ?…second line down…clicked on add a folder. I gave it the name Windows Live Mail and of course it was empty…but I dragged your “send link” to “Windows Live Mail” and dropped it. I tried it out and it works!
    Thanks again for the simple fix!

  • Reg Luther

    Regarding the expert advice on the above subject.
    Have followed the thread and instructions but need to know how to use the “Send Link” to send a page.
    Thanks

  • Chris

    I followed both ways above but it’s not working. I see the bookmark but nothing happens when I click it.

      > now what shell I do?

  • Chris

    Thank you for this. It would have been easier if I could have copied/pasted that script, but it wouldn’t allow me. But it worked second time around. Great!

  • Alex

    Great tool! Thank you!

  • Jerry W

    Thanks so much for the assistance. This is exactly what I was looking for when I found this site. My spouse and I are Internet Explorer refugees from the recent security issues. We have very little experience with Chrome. At first I could not get either Rob or Laura’s edited version of the script to execute, when I copied and pasted the scripts into the url box when creating the “Send Link” button. When I highlighted and dragged Robs script from the web page directly to o the Bookmarks bar that script worked fine. I made Laura’s edits to Robs script after I had dragged the original to the bar. Both versions worked great with my Outlook address. Thanks again for your help.

  • Don

    Tried but nothing happens when I click on the button.
