In LinkedIn, go to

Profile > Edit Profile

and click on the little wheel:

In Windows Explorer find C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures\your-signature-name (Note that the AppData folder is hidden by default so you might need to select show hidden folders).


Right click to edit this with an editor. Use NotePad if you don’t have a HTML editor.

Place the pasted LinkedIn HTML into your signature.
