If a document
is copied and pasted in a Microsoft Word file from an internet webpage, the hyperlinks usually remain in the Word document. If a user wishes to remove the hyperlinks
from a Microsoft Word file, there is a simple procedure that needs to be followed. For removing a single hyperlink, the link that is highlighted in blue needs to be located and upon right-clicking it, the option of 'Hyperlink' is selected and then removed. For removing all the hyperlinks in a file at the same time, the option of 'Edit' is selected, after which the entire document is selected using CTRL+A or the 'Select All' option. When 'CTRL+Shift+F9' keys are pressed together, all the hyperlinks are removed.
When you copy/paste part of a webpage into Word, you'll most probably end up with a document containing a lot of hyperlinks:
