urls (http text) is underlined in Word


The URL is underlined in Word and has blue text

This is a feature of Word and not our templates. In APA or MLA style URLs should not be underlined. Word will tend to underline these in an attempt to make the web address a live link.

In modern versions of Word:

Right click the url and select Remove Hyperlink

In older versions of Word:

Click Tools

Click AutoCorrect

Click Autoformat as you type

Uncheck Internet and Network paths
