Using and Removing Hyperlinks

Using and Removing Hyperlinks

Hyperlinks connect you to information in other documents. Rather than duplicating the important information stored in other documents, you can create hyperlinks to the relevant material. When you click a hyperlink for the first time (during a session), the color of the hyperlink changes, indicating that you have accessed the hyperlink. If a link becomes outdated or unnecessary, you can easily revise or remove it. PowerPoint repairs broken links. Whenever you save a presentation with hyperlinks, PowerPoint checks the links and repairs any that aren't working. For example, if a file was moved, PowerPoint updates the location.
