If you want to manually create a link, first select the
text or graphic you want the reader to click to launch
the hyperlink. Choose Insert>Links>Hyperlink,
which displays the Insert Hyperlink dialog box. The
Insert Hyperlink dialog box offers several options
from which you can select:
If you want to send an e-mail when the link
is selected, click the E-mail Address button,
then enter the recipient’s e-mail address
and a subject. When the user clicks the link,
the user’s e-mail program starts. Figure 7-17
illustrates the e-mail link options.
If you want to link to a different file or to a
Website, choose Existing File or Web Page.
For a different file, locate and select the file
name so when the user clicks the link, the
referenced file will open. However, if you
want to link to a Website, enter the Web
address in the Address text box. When the
user clicks the link, the Web browser will
open to the referenced Web page. Figure
7-16 illustrates a link to a Website.
Creating an e-mail hyperlink.
Word displays hyperlinks in a different color text
and with an underline. Press Ctrl and click any link
to jump to the specified location. As you hover
your mouse over the link, a tip appears with
instructions for following the link and a notation
to where the link will take you (see Figure 7-18).
Creating a hyperlink to a Website.
If you want to link to a different location in
the current document, click the Place in
This Document button, then specify which
heading or bookmark you want to
reference. When users click on this link they will
be redirected to the specified location.
If you want, when the hyperlink is clicked,
to create a new document, choose Create
New Document and then enter a name and
folder for the new document.
Hold down the Ctrl key and click the link.
