Annoying Hypertext Warnings

How to disable hyperlink warning messages in 2007+ Office programs


When you include links in PowerPoint, or other '07 applications, you may get this admonition:

Opening "path/filename".
Hyperlinks can be harmful to your computer and data. To protect your computer, click only those hyperlinks from trusted sources.

To disable the hyperlink warnings in 2007+ Office programs when an http:// address or an ftp:// address is used, you must create a new registry subkey.

To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.

  2. In the Open dialog box, type regedit, and then click OK.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common 

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common

    Note You only have to modify one of these registry subkeys. You do not have to modify both of them.

  4. Click the registry subkey, point to New on the Edit menu, and then click Key.

  5. Type Security, and then press ENTER to name the key.

  6. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.

  7. Type DisableHyperlinkWarning, and then press ENTER to name the entry.

  8. In the right pane, right-click DisableHyperlinkWarning, and then click Modify.
