Local.Live.Com Sharing Tip: Permalink

I had been mapping locations on local.live.com and then using the “email” button to get a link to send to people.

This created a problem because the default for the link is zoomed in all the way. Some people said they were getting zoomed in all the way with the aerial view, which generally doesn’t have any images. Not everyone finds the zooming toolbar intuitive enough.

So I poked around the site and discovered the Permalink feature. This is how to send someone not only the same marker, but the same exact view that you are looking at.

Click on Share on the upper toolbar, not on the scratch pad. It has more options and permalink is one of them.
