    Hi. First post.

    I have links in a Word document. I need to find a way to open the links using only my keyboard and not my mouse. Using the mouse I can go the the link, select the link, right click over the highlighted link, and select Open Hyperlink. All this can be done with the mouse. But how do I do all this using the keyboard. Thank you in advance for your reply.

    Use your keyboard arrow keys to place the curser over the hyperlink then press your {[enter]/ [return]} key... assumes you don't have hyperlinks disabled in your Microsoft-Word security settings.

    Some keyboards (eg, most Asus laptops) also have a {right-click} key...
    keyboard.
    ...tip, the button next to the right [alt] key.
