A. Welcome to the world of high technology. You’ll be happy to discover that this feature is very easy to use. Open either a document, spreadsheet or PowerPoint file you want to add a Web site link to. Click on Insert and Hyperlink (shortcut: Ctrl+K), evoking the Insert Hyperlink screen. Either type in the URL of the site, or better yet, open your browser and go to the target site and then return to the Insert Hyperlink screen and you’ll find the address automatically inserted. Click on OK and your link gets added to what you’re working on.
It’s that simple.

Because of the volume of mail, we regret we cannot individually answer submitted questions. However, if a reader’s question has broad interest, we will answer it in a forthcoming Technology Q&A column.
On occasion you may find that you cannot implement a function I describe in this column. More often than not it’s because not all functions work in every operating system or application. I try to test everything in the 2000 and XP editions of Windows and Office. It’s virtually impossible to test them in all editions and it’s equally difficult to find out which editions are incompatible with a function. I apologize for the inconvenience.
