Is there any way to PERMANENTLY change the Hyperlink Default for Word 2003?
I have several lengthy documents containing numerous hyperlinked bookmarks to direct you to other locations within the same document.
In Word 2003, the default requires you to press CTRL while clicking in order to follow the link.
However, I would rather that the link functioned directly when clicked, without having to press CTRL.
I’ll go to TOOLS > OPTIONS > EDIT & uncheck the “Use CTRL + Click to follow hyperlink” option.
I have also gone into TOOLS > OPTIONS > GENERAL> WEB OPTIONS > FILES & made sure “Update links on save” is checked.
Then the hyperlinked bookmarks work the way I want them to… for the moment.
However, changes I make to hyperlink options are NOT retained, especially not after a reboot or general “housecleaning” (clearing document histories, etc.)
I have to repeat all my TOOLS > OPTIONS changes each & every single time… & it’s aggravating!!
So… Is there actually any way to PERMANENTLY change the Hyperlink Default for Word 2003?
