I am trying to add a link to a letter in Word but the instructions are difficult to follow or perhaps I am just not savvy in that area. Is there a simple way to do this?
For those not familiar with the term, a hyperlink is an Internet link in a document. When you click or tap on that link it is activated it takes you somewhere else. It could be somewhere within the document or it could open a website. A hyperlink can be text or you can add one to an image.
The easiest way in Word is to copy and paste the web site link. Then, highlight the link with your mouse, right click directly on the highlighted link, and in the menu that pops up, choose Hyperlink.
If you have trouble with that or you don’t want to spell out the whole name of the site in your document, you can use the menus at the top of Word. It may vary in different versions, but in my Office 365 version, I can choose the Insert tab in the ribbon at the top, then click Links, then Hyperlink.
You’ll see another menu pop up that allows you to change the displayed text, as well as the linked website address. Once you choose OK, the web address will then turn to a hyperlink, underlined and blue in color.
