You may want to deactivate hyperlinks in order to convert the information into regular document text. In fact, you may have wanted to do the same with field codes, too. Instead of right-clicking and remove hyperlinks for every occurrence, Word offers two shortcut keys you can use to accomplish either task.

First, place the insertion point anywhere within the hyperlinked text or field you want to deactivate. Be careful not to launch it. Or, if you want to simultaneously strip all the hyperlinks and field codes in your document, begin by pressing [Ctrl]A to select the entire document. Next, press [Ctrl][Shift][F9] or [Ctrl]6. Word removes any selected hyperlinks and fields—without disturbing their original display text.
