Normally, when you type in a URL or someone’s email address and press Enter or press the Spacebar, Word turns it into a hot hyperlink. If this does not happen, it could be that this automatic hyperlinks has been turned off.

You can easily turn automatic hyperlinks back on through the AutoCorrect options, as described below:

  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button and select Word Options.
  2. Click Proofing then AutoCorrect Options.
  3. Select the AutoFormat As You Type tab.
  4. Select the check box beside the Internet and network paths with hyperlinks option.
  5. Click OK.
