Hyperlink Formatting in Microsoft Word
By default, Word recognizes network and hyperlink addresses and formats them much as you would see them appear on a Web page. Normally, this means that the text shows up as blue and underlined. Word provides the ability for you to change the way in which hyperlinks are formatted throughout your document. This is because default formatting for hyperlinks is done using a defined character style.
To change the formatting of your hyperlinks, follow these steps:
1. Display the Styles task pane by displaying the Home tab of the ribbon and then clicking the small icon at the lower-right corner of the Styles group.
2. Click Options at the bottom of the Styles task pane. Word displays the Style Pane Options dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
3. Using the Select Styles to Show drop-down list, select All Styles.
4. Click OK to close the Style Pane Options dialog box.
5. In the list of styles, hover the mouse pointer over the Hyperlink style. You should see a drop-down arrow appear at the right side of the style name.
