Adding a Facebook Button to a Signature in Mac Outlook on a Mac
By John Granby
Adding a custom signature to Microsoft Outlook on your Mac computer is easy to do. Adding a picture, such as a Facebook icon that links to your personal or company Facebook page, is also a simple task. Outlook has an easy-to-follow dialog box that enables you to add your custom signature. If you desire, you can create multiple signatures and select which signature you want to apply to all your messages by default. It is possible to select a different signature each time you create an email message if you create multiple signatures.
Launch Microsoft Word on your Mac, and begin creating your signature. Type all the text you wish to appear, such as your name and any other information.
Insert the Facebook button image or icon you want to appear in your signature. Right-click on the image and select "Hyperlink." Enter your Facebook page URL into the "Link to" field. To get your Facebook URL, log into your Facebook account, and click your name in the upper left corner. Copy the URL that is in your Web browser's address field.
Click "OK" when you have entered your Facebook URL. Click "Edit" followed by "Select All," "Edit" and "Copy" to copy your newly created signature to the clipboard.
Launch Microsoft Outlook on your Mac computer. Click "Outlook" followed by "Preferences."
Click "Signatures," and then click the "+" button on the bottom left to create a signature. You can rename the signature's default name "Untitled" by double-clicking it and entering your own description.
Click the check box next to the new signature, and then click inside the text window on the right side. Press "Command-V" to paste your signature into the window.
Click the "Default Signatures..." button, and select the email accounts you want to associate with this signature. Click "OK."
Close the Signatures window, and create an email message. Your new signature will be applied to the bottom of your message.
