How do I click on a URL I typed in Wordpad and get it to open site.

Hello Fellow members,

I I just lost an important function. When I store important websites I'm working on, I just type the complete URL on the Wordpad page I'm working on. For, instance, http://www.google.com
Then when I click on the URL it will open up the website. Somehow, I just lost that capability. How do I get it back.

Welcome to Seven Forums sydney14. I can open wordpad and type an address that then becomes a hyperlink as you mentioned. Saving it saves as a Word document for me however as I have Office installed. When you type the address, do you include the http:// part as well? Does the link appear blue as if it should be clickable? If you press the Ctrl button, then click does it open then? If you have a restore point from just before the problem started, that may be the easiest fix.

Sounds like an insult to Notepad.
