Creating a Friendly Text Hyperlink
You do not have to do anything special to create these hyperlinks; when you type them
and press Enter or the spacebar, PowerPoint converts them to hyperlinks. You know the
conversion has taken place because the text becomes underlined and a different color. (The
exact color depends on the color scheme in use.)
Figure 19.2 shows some examples of these bare hyperlinks. I call them bare because you
see what’s underneath them — the actual address — right there on the surface. There is
no friendly “click here” text that the link hides behind. For example, the text support@
microsoft.com is a hyperlink that sends e-mail to that address. In contrast, a link that
reads “Click here to send e-mail to me” and contains the same hyperlink address is not
bare, because you do not see the address directly.

If PowerPoint does not automatically create hyperlinks, the feature may be disabled. Choose File
Options. Click
Prooi ng, and then click AutoCorrect Options. Click the AutoFormat As You Type tab, and make sure the Internet and
Network Paths with Hyperlinks check box is marked.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. It’s a method of transferring i les via the Internet. FTP used to be a totally sepa-
rate system from the Web, but nowadays, web browsers have FTP download capabilities built in, so anyone who has a
web browser can receive i les via FTP.
Creating a Friendly Text Hyperlink
A friendly hyperlink is a hyperlink comprising text but not just the bare address. For
example, in Figure 19.1, “Customer Satisfaction Surveys” is a text hyperlink. ( Friendly is
not an industry-standard technical term; it’s just one I fi nd convenient for discussion in
this topic.)
You can select already-entered text and make it a hyperlink, or you can enter new text.
