Word: Remove Hyperlinks and Stop Automatic Hyperlinks

Ever typed a web or e-mail address and been annoyed that it's been turned into a blue, underlined hyperlink when you'd rather it just look like regular text?

My good news for you is that it's quick and easy to undo: just right-click the hyperlink, and click 'Remove Hyperlink'.

If it's not a one-off thing, and you find yourself constantly removing the hyperlinks, you may want to turn that feature off entirely. Click the Microsoft Office button, and choose 'Word Options'. On the lefthand side of the box that comes up, click 'Proofing'. At the top, click the 'AutoCorrect Options...' button. Click the 'AutoFormat As You Type' tab, and uncheck 'Internet and network paths with hyperlinks'. Click 'OK' to get out of both open windows, and now you'll notice your hyperlinks don't automatically get formatted as you type.
