Microsoft Office Question:

How do I turn off the automatic URLs in MS Office?

Answer:

1. Choose AutoCorrect (or AutoCorrect Options) from the Tools menu.
2. Click on the AutoFormat As You Type tab.
3. Under Replace As You Type, clear the Internet and network paths with hyperlink check box.

If you didn't turn off AutoCorrect before you started typing and now you have a document full of hyperlinks that you don't want, you can turn them off, either one at a time, or all at once. To turn a link off, right-click on the link, select Hyperlink from the pop-up menu, and then select Remove Hyperlink. To remove all links from the document, choose Select All from the Edit menu or press Ctrl+A, and then press Ctrl+6 to remove all hyperlinks.
