How can I change a text url in a received message to a hyperlink?

I receive emails from some senders that show a forwarded URL as text. I would like to have these changed to a hyperlink in the message. These are trusted senders. Now I have to highlight the URL, copy it , open my browser and paste it in the address bar of the browser.

Usually, an URL that doesn't show as a link has something wrong with it. Most email clients will present valid URLs as clickable links. Do you need to be particular about which part of the text you copy-and-paste to the address bar?

This happens with two senders. I just highlight the entire forwarded URL text. It works once I paste it into the address bar.
