Microsoft Word: Turn Text into Hyperlinks

Keyboard shortcuts

It’s easy to make text in your Word documents hot — that is, into hyperlinks readers click on to get to a site online. I do it with the key combination [CTRL][K]. Here’s how.

First, open your document and select the text you want to turn into a link.
hottextshot11

Then hit the key combo [CTRL][K]. This will display the following popup.

1

Now just type in the URL you want the text to link to. Here I’m typing in the address for groovyPost. Click OK.

2

You’ll see the text you selected is now a hotlink. Groovy.
