Edited by Thor, Leomar Umpad, Dougie

Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video we're going to show you how to insert a hyperlink into a document in Open Office 4 when using a Macbook Air.


Steps

  1. 1
    The reason we insert hyperlink into a document is in order to provide you with access to the web address that will take you directly to a web page in a very fast and efficient manner. It means if you're writing an essay, or you're creating a web page, or you're doing anything where you want to reference a website and demonstrate it's style or content to the reader you can include this hyperlink and it will take them directly to the website.

    We can also change the text if we wanted to write. Perhaps not for this example but perhaps if you wanted to place a hyperlink to a website but you wanted to change the title. If you wanted it for a competition and you are trying to entice people to your website without using the exact name of your website.
