Editing Hyperlinks

Links go bad. Files get moved around or are deleted. Web sites come and go. When this happens, you need to be able to change or delete your hyperlinks. Again, Word 2000 makes this an easy task. Imagine you want to change a hyperlink from http://www.microsoft.com to http://home.microsoft.com. Here's how:

  1. Right-click anywhere over the hyperlink and choose Hyperlink, Edit Hyperlink. (Do not click on the hyperlink—this activates the link.) Alternatively, you can use the keyboard arrow keys to place the cursor anywhere in the hyperlinked text and choose Insert, Hyperlink from the menu, toolbar, or using the keyboard shortcut, Ctrl+K. You do not need to select all the display text.

  2. Figure 11.13 shows you the Edit Hyperlink box. Your display text and original hyperlink are displayed at the top of the box. This dialog box closely resembles the Insert Link dialog box except for the addition of a Remove Link button at the bottom.

  3. To edit your hyperlink, just select the box containing the URL and enter your new URL, or choose a new URL using any of the many techniques already discussed in this chapter.

  4. If you want to completely eliminate the hyperlink, click the Remove Link button at the bottom. The Insert Hyperlink box disappears and so does your hyperlink, though the display text is unchanged.
