If you copy contant from web and paste them into Microsoft Word file, you may found that there are a lot of hyperlinks, which you may want to delete them.
So, how to you delete those unused hyperlinks? Simply right-click them one by one and choose “Remove hyperlink“? This method is very time consuming especially if you have a very long article that has a lot of hyperlinks.
The second method you may try to paste the content into a notepad first, then copy content from notepad, and paste again into a new Word file. This method will also remove the heading and style of your content, it is because when you paste something to notepad, notepad will only read plain text from it.
So, how to solve this problem wisely? The best method is to paste your content into a new word file, press “Ctrl + A” to select all, and then use the shortcut key “Ctrl + Shift + F9” to remove all hyperlinks.

I cover XWindows Dock yesterday, and i would like to introduce another portable application which performs similar task. It is called RunMe. The application was being published quite some time ago, but i just discovered it today, and i decide to write about it, since it is really worth us to have a look.
RunMe - Portable application launcher for windows
To some of the users, RunMe may be a simple utilities to launch their favorite application. But for advanced users, RunMe may become a replacement tool for their Windows Start Menu(you can configure this through the Settings option).
Users can add any program to the launcher by dragging and dropping the shortcut into it. There are a lot of settings that you can change. for example, you can change the look of RunMe from the preinstalled 15 themes, the dock position of the launcher, the effects, and much more.
RunMe is a portable application, which mean you can always carry it with your USB pendrive. All settings are saved in a XML file. If you like an application launcher with docking support, make sure you look into this application!
Note: This application support Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 as well.
