  2. This great short way to remove all links from word file at once

  3. I tried the method #3 but it didn’t work. I was hoping it would but all it did, is remove the highlighting but he hyperlink was still there. would have made my life alot easier if it had worked.

    Its working, removing all hyperlinks from file but remains the links formatting.
    Suppose if the links formatting was blue color and underline this will not change the color and underline to normal but removes the hyperlink.
    You can check this after applying method#3 take cursor over text that was link and it will not say Ctrl+Click to follow this.

  5. Method#3 works for me, though. Thanks!

  6. For a Mac, you need to highlight the text, then press Command+6
