Working with Hyperlinks
When you type anything that looks like a Web URL or an e-mail address (www.abc.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) in Word 97 or Outlook, the words turn into a hyperlink that launches your default Web browser when you click it, right from inside your document.
Two things to keep in mind when working with hyperlinks:
It won't actually convert to a hyperlink until you press the spacebar or Enter. This helps if you make a typing error, you can always go back and correct it before it's converted.
If you find it's been mistyped after it was converted, you can no longer edit it as if it were plain text. Instead, right-click the link, select Hyperlink, then Edit Hyperlink.
