how links look

When you visit a Web page, any links on it are usually blue, except for any links you have already visited, which are usually purple. This is a convention that dates back to the beginning of the Web. Some usability experts recommend that you not change link colors, because users have come to expect those colors. But you can change the unvisited and visited link colors for your Web pages so that visitors see different colors for your links.

changing the color of links

  1. Right-click in the page area and choose Properties > Page Area. The Page Area Properties dialog box appears.
