How To Disable Automatic Hyperlinks in Microsoft Word

Tired of the automatic hyperlinking feature in Microsoft word? Well, this is  a common problem for people when they are trying to copy some article or portion of a paragraph and pasting it to Word for printing. One solution they do is they remove the underline (highlighting the text then pressing CTRL+U or through the toolbar) then changing the font color from blue (default hyperlink color) to the default text color which is black. But this procedure is a hassle and sometimes a pain for others. What I have here is a very easy tip on how you can easily disable the automatic hyperlinking in MS Word 2003 and 2007.
