    MS Ofice 2016 crash when inserting hyperlink

    User @Zardoc posted warning about puting GodMode (access to all Control panel items) shortcut to specific folders, as it will make Office apps crash when inserting hyperlink.

    I've confirmed this behavior, as have had exactly the same problem on one computer. Word crashed when trying to insert hyperlink to a file on the PC. In my case GodMode was created on desktop, but was crashing Word when trying to create hyperlink at totally different folder...

    Discussion was going on in Insider announcement thread, but think it deserves its separate thread. And, if anybody doesn't know what Godmode is (all Control panel items)

    Solution again.
    If any of your Office applications crash, when trying to create hyperlink to local file, check if you have GodMode (all Control panel items) shortcut or folder. Delete it.
