To remove individual hyperlinks, you can right click and choose Remove, but they can return when you make changes to the document.* To turn off automatic hyperlinks, make the following changes in Word:

  1. Select File then Options
  2. Select Proofing then Autocorrect Options
  3. On the AutoFormat as you type tab and on the AutoFormat tab, click to clear the Internet and network paths with hyperlinks check box, and then click OK.

For other versions of Word, please see the link below for instructions, under the section How do I turn off automatic hyperlinks.

*If you use EndNote, hyperlinks will return when the software updates your document. The hyperlink functions are governed by Word, not EndNote, so follow the instructions above to manage this.
