Wouldn’t it be better if you could get rid of all the links in one click? Actually there are two ways to remove all the links from a Word document.

1. Shortcut To Delete All Links From A Word Document

Just select the whole document’s text by pressing Ctrl+A, then press Ctrl+Shift+F9, and all the links will be removed. You can also select a part of document that contains the links and then press the shortcut Ctrl+Shift+F9.

2. Create A Macro

1. Open Word.

2. Press Alt+F11 to open the Visual Basic editor window.

3. Go to Insert > Module, and copy the following code in the code window,

Sub RemoveHyperlinks()
Dim oField As Field
For Each oField In ActiveDocument.Fields
If oField.Type = wdFieldHyperlink Then
End If
Set oField = Nothing
End Sub

4. Now go to, File > Close.

That’s it. You have just created a macro to remove all the hyperlinks from a word document in single click. To use this macro, just go to Tools > Macro > Macro and then Run “RemoveAllHyperlinks”. All the links will be removed instantly.
