Add Links to Web Pages in your Documents

Summary: Here are two ways to add hyperlinks to webpages inside your Microsoft Word 2000 documents.

Adding links to webpages in your Microsoft Word 2000 documents is easy. Just type in a web address, starting with http://, and Word will automatically convert your link to a hyperlink.

However, would you like to type in some text, such as "Link to my homepage", and have that text displayed in your document, instead of the actual URL? That, too, is simple. Click on the "Insert" button and choose "Hyperlink" (you can also press CONTROL-K). On the "Insert Hyperlink" dialog box that follows, click on the "Text to display" field and enter the text that you would like visible in your document. Then, underneath "Type the file or Web page name", type in the webpage to which you want the hyperlink to link. When you are done, press "OK" to close the dialog box and see your link inserted in your current document.
