Add Richedit to your uses clause and then the followinf to your Form's OnCreate event

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
 SendMessage(RichEdit1.Handle, EM_AUTOURLDETECT, 1, 0);
end;

If you want to add a Url which may have a different caption, then you will need a third party solution, cause its not supported in TRichEdit
