Tech Tips for Writers is an (almost) weekly post on overcoming Tech Dread. I’ll cover issues that friends, both real-time and virtual, have shared. Feel free to post a comment about a question you have. I’ll cover it in a future Tip.
Q:I see a blue phrase on my page. It’s underlined. I’m told that’s a link to a website. How do I make it work?
A: Activating a link in MS Word or most of the MS Office products is pretty simple.
- hover over the word or phrase
- Push Ctrl+click to activate
Mousing over a word or phrase displays its tool tips. In this case, it’ll tell you to Ctrl+click to visit the website.
