Remove All Hyperlinks in Microsoft Word [2 Steps]
There are times when I am having a project and it requires me to look for resources from the internet. Most of the time, I will look up on Wikipedia, and it troubles me so much when I copy and paste an article that is full of links to Microsoft Word.
Instead of removing those links one by one, you can try this method, which only consist of two steps, but will remove all links in one go.
- Press Ctrl+A, which will highlight the entire text
- Press Ctrl+Shift+F9 (OR Ctrl+6), and you will see all links disappearing within seconds
*For Mac, try Command + 6
This method is working on my Microsoft Word 2003, MS Word 2007(thanks Shivshanker) and Word 2008 for Mac (thanks Kris), but I have not tested it on other versions.
