    MS Ofice 2016 crash when inserting hyperlink


    User @Zardoc posted warning about puting GodMode (access to all Control panel items) shortcut to specific folders, as it will make Office apps crash when inserting hyperlink.

    I've confirmed this behavior, as have had exactly the same problem on one computer. Word crashed when trying to insert hyperlink to a file on the PC. In my case GodMode was created on desktop, but was crashing Word when trying to create hyperlink at totally different folder...

    Discussion was going on in Insider announcement thread, but think it deserves its separate thread. And, if anybody doesn't know what Godmode is (all Control panel items)

    Solution again.
    If any of your Office applications crash, when trying to create hyperlink to local file, check if you have GodMode (all Control panel items) shortcut or folder. Delete it.

    :)

  2. Hyperlinks don't work in windows 10 mail

    I am using Mail that comes with Office Student 2016....

    I am unable to access hyperlinks within emails I received. When I click on link I a blank page displays and then I receive a sad face icon and that is it.

    To even answer your questions I had to do a copy and paste as nothing happened when I clicked on the 'reply' link.

    with thanks

    Hyperlinks don't work in windows 10 mail

    Hi Robyn,

    It is possible that this is a browser issue or registry problems. For us to properly isolate your issue, we'd like to ask some questions:

    • Are you using the default mail app for Windows 10 or Outlook 2016?
    • Are you having issues inserting or accessing the hyperlink?
    • Did you encounter any error messages when working on the hyperlink?

    In addition, if you're encountering the issue using the Outlook application, we have provided an article below for a resolution:

    We're looking forward to your response.

    With Microsoft moving more and more commands from Control panel to settings, It's easier to give up on God mode...

    I had no idea this was a problem. Granted, I have not had problems inserting hyperlinks into documents (yet?), but glad I saw this thread.
