Tech Tip #19: How to Activate a Link in Word

tech tipsAs a working technology teacher, I get hundreds of questions from parents about their home computers, how to do stuff, how to solve problems. Each Tuesday, I’ll share one of those with you. They’re always brief and always focused. Enjoy!

Q:I see a blue phrase on my page. It’s underlined. I’m told that’s a link to a website. How do I make it work?

A: Activating a link in MS Word or most of the MS Office products is pretty simple.

  • hover over the word or phrase
  • Push Ctrl+click to activate

Mousing over a word or phrase displays its tool tips. In this case, it’ll tell you to Ctrl+click to visit the website.

Click to find out how to add a link yourself.
