    Word Hyperlink sends me Youtube browser screen


    Word 16: Add a hyperlink and it sends me to a generic Youtube sight saying my browser is up to date (I use chrome).

    What do I have to do so it sends me to the correct URL.

    Select this hyperlink by running your cursor over the text so it is all selected, copy it by pressing Ctrl-C, paste it into your Word document then click on it.
    Sample hyperlink at TenForums
    It should bring you straight back to this post.

    For any hyperlink in Word, you can hover your cursor over it and a popup shows you its target address.
    You can right-click on any hyperlink in Word & select Edit hyperlink to be able to change its target address.
