How to Embed a Webpage in Gmail

Updated March 23, 2017

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.

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

Highlight the entire webpage.

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

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

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


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).
