Remove mailto link from Microsoft 365 Word Document Email Text

If you type in an email-id in a Microsoft Word Document, it will get auto-converted into a mailto link, and when you click on it, it will open up your mail client such as Outlook or Mail on the Mac.

If you want to remove that link from your word document, simply, right-click on the email address and select, Remove Link.

Remove link option Microsoft Word

Note: If you type an email address and do the remove link, and then start typing again (mostly followed by a spacebar) the link will come up again, so it is better you try something after the email and then remove it, so it does not appear again.
