Word automatically turns a web address into a link when you press Spacebar or Enter, if you typed “http://” at the beginning.
If you want to link from “friendly text” in your document, the fastest way is to start by copying the address to the clipboard:
- Copy the address from your browser’s address bar.
- Go to your document in Word, and select the text that you want to be the link.
- Press Ctrl+K
- Paste the address and press Enter.
- Later, if you want to change the link, right-click it and choose Edit Hyperlink.
Follow links while editing
While you’re editing your document, clicking a link lets you edit its display text (friendly text). To follow a link, press Ctrl+Click.
Tip: If you’d rather follow links just by clicking them, Go to File > Options > Advanced and clear the Use Ctrl+Click to follow hyperlink check box.
