Gmail, a popular online e-mail service, has a number of unique features that can make organising and composing your e-mails easy and fun. Unfortunately, Gmail lacks an elegant way to embed web pages into a message. Therefore, the easiest way to embed a webpage in Gmail is by copying and then pasting it into Gmail.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open your Web browser and navigate to the webpage you want to embed.

  2. 2

    Highlight the entire webpage.

  3. 3

    Copy the selection to your clipboard by clicking "Ctrl" and "C" keys at the same time.

  4. 4

    Log in to your Gmail account and begin a new e-mail message.

  5. 5

    Paste the contents of the clipboard into the message by clicking "Ctrl" and "V" keys at the same time.

Tips and warnings

  • Many e-mail clients support embedded hypertext markup language, or HTML. For a more flexible way of integrating web pages into your e-mail, you can compose a message in these applications and then send it by way of your Gmail account. Mozilla Thunderbird is one such program (see Resources).
