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:
Full 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.
Now your document is hyperlink-less and clean.

As soon as I clicked the sign in button, Google Desktop became unresponsive and eventually came crashing down.
