4. Editing Power Tools > 28. Unlink Every Hyperlink

Unlink Every Hyperlink

Sometimes uninvited, often distracting, and always hard to wrangle, hyperlinks tend to stick around your documents like unwelcome guests at a party. Here’s how to show them the door.

Maybe it’s because they’re so difficult to edit; maybe it’s the tacky combination of blue and underline; or maybe it’s having to continually dismiss that web browser or email editor you didn’t mean to open. Whatever the reason, many users have just one thing to say about hyperlinks in Word: “How do I get rid of them!?”

Tip

To stop Word from creating hyperlinks, select ToolsAutoCorrect Options (ToolsAutoCorrect in Word 97 and 2000), click the “AutoFormat As You Type” tab, and uncheck the “Internet and network paths with hyperlinks” box.
