Registered just to say thank you!!! This problem drove me nuts, and I knew I pressed something weird since I was playing game and having Word open at the same time, but for the life of me I couldn't figure out what.
It's too funny that after 6 years, there are still people who benefit from this thread lol!
I just had to join the forum to express my gratitude for this thread. I've been going crazy for the past hour trying to find a fix for the hyperlink problem and stumbled on the post with the Alt+F9 solution. Bravo!!!!
