To remove hyperlinks from Microsoft Word documents, you can follow these steps:
- Highlight the hyperlink or the text containing the hyperlink that you want to remove.
- Right-click on the selected text and click “Remove Hyperlink” from the context menu.
- Alternatively, you can press “Ctrl + Shift + F9” on your keyboard to remove all hyperlinks in the document at once.
- If you want to prevent hyperlinks from being created automatically in the future, you can change the default setting in Word. Click on “File” in the top menu and select “Options.” Then click on “Proofing” and click the “AutoCorrect Options” button. In the AutoCorrect dialog box, click on the “AutoFormat As You Type” tab and uncheck the box next to “Internet and network paths with hyperlinks.” Click “OK” to save your changes.
Note that removing a hyperlink will convert the hyperlink text back to regular text, so it will no longer be clickable as a hyperlink.
