Carol’s Ramblings

As you may have noticed, it was a very spare newsletter indeed last month.  The reason for that is twofold. I have been having problems with my site and am still working to resolve them and secondly, I had a medical issue that precluded me from working on the newsletter. The good news is that my medical condition is completely resolved and I am learning a lot more about owning a Word Press site.  I’m not all the way there yet but I am plugging away.  I thank you for your continued confidence in my abilities.

Now that the election and Halloween are over, we are moving into the holiday season. It pains me greatly that I may not be able to celebrate with my family and loved ones around me this time but I am hoping and praying that a vaccine and a cure will be here soon. I am sure you are all hoping and praying for the same.

Again thank you for your continued confidence.  Until next time, please take care of yourself and anyone who needs you.  During an age when you can be anything, please be kind.

How To Add & Remove Hyperlinks in Outlook 365

First of all, this information does not pertain only to Outlook.  It also is relevant for Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Ok, now that is out of the way let’s move on.  As you know, you can  create links to new files or on ones that have been on your computer for ages. These links can be added to locations in documents, and to email addresses. You can also edit them as you would anything else.

  • Select the text or image that you would like to display as a hyperlink.
  • Press CTRL + K (you can also, if you prefer, right-click on your text or picture and click Link on the shortcut menu).
  • Now, in the Insert Hyperlink box that appears, key in or paste your link in the Address area.
  • If you do not see the Address box, be certain the Existing File or Web Page is selected under Link to.
  • You can also, if you like,  key in your own text to display for your link in the Text to display area.
  • Should you not know the web address for your hyperlink, simply click the Browse the Web icon, navigate to the URL on the Internet, copy and paste it. browse-the-webThat is basically how it is done!
