Working with Hyperlinks
When you type anything that looks like a Web URL or an e-mail address (www.abc.com or someone@xyz.com) 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.
