Editing Links

After you set a link, you may decide that it should have a different appearance or should perform a different action. And of course, if it's a Web link, it's quite likely (given the fluid nature of the Web) that the site will change or disappear at some point. Fortunately, editing or deleting a link is as easy as setting it up.

1.
With the document open to the page that contains the link, choose the Link tool from the Advanced Editing toolbar.

2.
Double-click an existing link.

Right-click/Control-click the link and choose Properties from the contextual menu.
