    I recently installed Office 2003 to replace Office 97 and I now have to press & hold the cntl key when clicking on a hyperlink in my document. This is awkward when I am on the phone. Is there a way to disable the need to press the cntl key?

    This is my first post so I'm not sure if I have supplied all necessary info.

    Thanks

    Hi socalhkc, welcome to TSG.

    The default behavior in Word 2003 is to require ctrl+click to prevent you from accidentally going to links when you don't mean to, but you can disable it:

    Click Tools.
    Select Options.
    In the Options dialog box, select the Edit tab.
    Uncheck Use CTRL + Click to follow hyperlink.
    Click OK.

    Hope that helps.
