Documents—particularly those shared with others online—are subject to quite a bit of change over their lifetime. One area that may need to be changed more often than others is hyperlinks. A link may no longer be necessary, someone may prefer to use a different link, or the target of a link may no longer be valid.
Fortunately, Docs allows you to remove hyperlinks you previously added to a document. You do this by simply clicking on the hyperlinked text. Docs then shows a small information box below the text. (See Figure 1.)

Note at the right side of the information box there is a Remove link. Click this link and the hyperlink is immediately removed from your document, without further ado. If you realize after deleting the hyperlink that you made a mistake, just press Ctrl+Z to undo the removal.
