How to remove all hyperlinks from a Word document

Sometimes it is useful to copy web content into Word. Maybe you want to print only a part of the webpage, or just copy a quote or two. However, more often than not, your document ends up looking like this:

imageFull of ugly blue hyperlinks! This is especially annoying when you want to print the document and don’t want to use any color ink. You could right-click on each hyperlink and remove it manually, but this is tedious when there are many hyperlinks in the pasted text.

Thankfully, Word has a feature to remove all hyperlinks in a selected area. Select the whole document (Ctrl+A) or just the portion you want hyperlinks removed from, and press Ctrl+Shift+F9.

imageNow your document is hyperlink-less and clean.

Gmail gadget locked up in Windows 7

So far, almost all software I’ve tried to run under Windows 7 has worked without any problems. Today I installed Google Desktop, and everything was working fine until I added the Gmail gadget. As soon as I clicked the sign in button, Google Desktop became unresponsive and eventually came crashing down.

All other gadgets I’ve tried, including the new Google Calender gadget, work fine.

There’s a thread about this in the Google Desktop Help group. I guess we’ll just have to wait until Google fixes this, unfortunately.

Windows 7 bug: Distributed Link Tracking Client dies, Internet connections and Aero with it

Continuing through my adventures with Windows 7 beta, I came upon a weird bug today.

Something called the Distributed Link Tracking Client crashed. With it, Aero and my Internet connection also went down.

The problem fixed itself within a minute. Nothing major, I guess, but it is a beta after all.
