Send a file, picture, or link in Teams

Once you’re in a chat, you can send messages that contain files, pictures, and links.

Send a link

To send a link, click Format Expand icon in Teams below the compose box, then press Insert link Insert link icon in Teams .

Select Format to expand the box.

Attach display text and the address, and then pick Insert, or simply copy and paste the link into the compose box and press Send Send message icon in Teams . After you send it, the message including your link has a thumbnail image and preview, which you can dismiss if you’d prefer not see it. 

Note: Teams has its​ own ATP Safe Links security to verify that any link that you send or receive is safe to click on. As an added layer of protection, we’ll let you know if we’ve identified a potentially unsafe link.
