How do I stop automatic underlining of URLs?

URLs (Uniform Reference Locators) appear underlined and in a different color from the rest of my text. How do I reverse this setting?



To stop automatic underlining of URLs:

  • Select Tools > AutoCorrect Options and then the Options tab.
  • Scroll down in the list that appears to the choice called 'URL recognition'.
  • Click the box to the left of this choice to turn the behavior off.
  • Click OK at the bottom of the dialog to apply the change.
Documentation note.png URL recognition also recognizes anything with the '@' symbol as an email address. Turning this option off will cause email addresses to remain unrecognized.

To selectively determine which addresses should be treated as links, leave URL recognition on, but turn off recognition by the following:

  • Hold the left click and drag select the entire address.
  • Right click on the selected address and select Default Formatting.

An address which has converted to a link may be converted back to normal text by entering Ctrl-Z before the text cursor is moved.
