While giving comments many times I wanted to add links to my comment. But instead of using some short hand like Read "this" (this is a link in this case) I had to write Read "http:\\www.somelink.com". I tried ctrl+L to insert a link to my comment but it was of no use.

I have seen people inserting links to their comments in the above mentioned way. How? Hope I have made myself clear.

What about links containing '(' and ')' like this one: technet.microsoft.com/pt-br/library/cc784450(v=ws.10).aspx ? – Miguel Angelo Feb 7 '14 at 19:24
@MiguelAngelo - %28 and %29 can be used for ( and ) respectively, just like %20 can be used to represent a space. YourExample = [YourExample](http://technet.microsoft.com/pt-br/library/cc784450%28v=ws.10%29.‌​aspx) – MatBailie Mar 6 '14 at 16:38
