There are many uses for hyperlinks these days, whether it be a link to your profile elsewhere, the source of the information, your website, etc. — just a lot of them. In Google Docs, basically, you can add a link to nearly every element, be it a text, an image, or whatever. And when you do it, it will get highlighted with a blue color and underlined just like we’re used to how links look on the web. And let’s add a few ones.
To add a hyperlink to a text, highlight some part of a text you want to put a link into — a word, a phrase, or even a whole paragraph. We are going to show you a random sample
Then, on the toolbar on top of the page, locate and press on such an icon symbolizing a link (“Insert link”)
Then simply paste your link into this field and click “Apply” next to it. There you go
The text turned blue and got underlined, indicating that it contains a link
NB! Or to insert a link, you can use a shortcut, which is Ctrl + K for PC and Cmd + K for Mac.
So, now when you click anywhere on the highlighted text, it will bring up such a bar with a few first values of the link. And if you or anyone else clicks on it, it will naturally send you to the source of the link. That’s how it works. We will show you our sample.
Also, it might show a little preview of the content of the link if the source allows it to. For instance, if you paste a link to a YouTube video and press on it afterwards, it may show a little preview of the video with some images from it. Or it can be a preview of a website, your profile on some social network, etc. Yet it doesn’t work for everything. We will show you a random sample of a little preview of the content of the link
And as mentioned earlier, you can insert a link into an image in Google Docs, which is performed just the same way:
So, select the image, go to the link icon on the toolbar on top of the page and press it
Then paste a link in here and press “Apply”
This is it. Now when you click on an image, it will bring up the familiar bar with the link below the image settings. And that’s how you do it all
And finally, to remove a link, press on the text or an image with the link in it. And on this appearing bar with the link, press on the rightmost icon (“Remove link”)
The text is back to normal, meaning it no longer contains a link
