When you receive messages from other members, LinkedIn sends notifications to your email account (optional based on your settings) and through LinkedIn messaging. You can respond to these messages through your LinkedIn account.

To reply to a message through your LinkedIn messaging page:

  1. Click the Messaging icon at the top of your homepage.
  2. Select the message from the list on the left rail.
  3. Draft your message at the bottom of the page. You can customize it by inserting a photo, attachment, or sticker using the icons at the bottom of the text box.
  4. Press Enter on your keyboard to send (if the press enter to send option is enabled), or click the Send button.

Note: If you have the press enter to send option enabled, press Shift + Enter to add a new paragraph within your message.
