A hyperlink is a section of text or an image you can click on to take you to another web address. Hyperlinks are typically used to make a very long url look more professional and descriptive in your email and documents.
To Create a Hyperlink:
It might be best to select and COPY the address you want to use for a hyperlink before creating one, this makes the process simpler.
Select the text or picture that you want to display as a hyperlink. Use something descriptive for the reader to know what he is clicking.
(You can also right-click the text or picture and click LINK on the shortcut menu.)
In the Insert Hyperlink box, type or PASTE the address in the Address box.
Optional: To customize the ScreenTip that appears when you rest the pointer over the hyperlink, click ScreenTip in the top-right corner of the Insert Hyperlink dialog box and enter the text you want.
To Edit a Hyperlink:
- Right-click the hyperlink or image and click Edit Hyperlink.
- You can then change the address to the hyperlink or REMOVE it.
- If you would like to change the appearance of the hyperlink, highlight the text and use the font toolbar to modify the text as normal.
