Add A Hyperlink To A Document

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. Sometimes I get e-mails that contain imbedded URLs. They’re really convenient because all it takes is a single click to get to the targeted Web page. How do you insert one into a document?

A. It’s easy to do—just insert them as hyperlinks. To do that, type the URL in your document or e-mail and highlight it. Select Insert, Hyperlink , and a dialog box pops up.

The URL will automatically appear in the Type the file or Web page name box. Click on OK and the hyperlink will appear in the document underlined and in color.
