Hyperlinks Not Displaying Correctly in MS Word

Dennis Faas's picture

A reader recently wrote to me because he had followed my instructions for inserting a hyperlink in his MS Word document and it just didn't look right and when he clicked on it, it just didn't work!

There is a very easy fix for this problem and I advised him thusly:

  1. Click on Tools | Options.
  2. Under the View tab, deselect Field Codes.

Then, instead of seeing the text below -

{HYPERLINK. "http://www.carolscorneroffice.com/"}

He now sees:

Carol's Corner Office.com.and when he clicks on the link, it takes him to Carol's Corner Office!
