    Just notice some text messages have this blue looking paperclip or looks like a horizontal number 8 sign. What is it mean? Only some text have it in the bottom right corner.

    I don't know how to do a screenshot. It is in the bottom right hand side of some text messages. Not all the text messages have it though. Might be some search function or something. It looks like a number 8, tilted to the right. It is blue color. I have an LG G2.

    This video will show you how to do a screen shot, make sure you have the text in question on the screen.

    That notifies you that the text message contains a link whether it be a webpage, coordinates, or a phone number. If you click the text in blue (the links) then an app, in those cases; phone and/or browser, will open.

    That screenshot seems to contain some sensitive information, I high suggest you edit the pictures.
