Tip 185 – Permanently Disable Hyperlinks in PowerPoint Presentations

If you never (or seldom) need web and email links formatted to show as hyperlinks you can stop PowerPoint from automatically formatting them this way. Choose File > Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect Options and click the AutoFormat as You Type tab. Disable the Internet and network paths with hyperlinks checkbox and click Ok. Now hyperlinks won’t be created automatically in future.
