Microsoft Word Images copied from internet

A Microsoft Word document has a number of images in it. When I hover over the image, I see a tooltip with a format like
"javascript:popimage('img_88','http://some-url-address/some-filename.jpg','some-number','some-number')
Ctrl+Click to follow link
I thought this might mean that Word was accessing the internet to retrieve the picture. I converted the Word doc to PDF and the same tooltip shows up. I disabled the internet, yet the images still show up. Could that be due to image caching?

I don't want Word to access the internet to retrieve pictures. If that is what is happening, then I would like to automatically manipulate Word to retrieve the image and embed it in the document. (Same idea for the corresponding PDF file.) Is this possible to do quickly. (Alternatively, I guess I would have to snip out each picture and paste it into the doc and then delete the original image, but that would take much time.)

Could you clarify whether the tooltip message means that the image is retrieved from the site. If so, is it image caching that allows me to see the image when the internet is disabled? If the site goes down, I don't want to lose the images (or have Word hang up for an hour.) I also don't want to accidentally in a clumsy manner to hit Ctrl+Click and access the site.

Thanks for any insights you may offer.

To resolve your curiousity, you may copy the same document to another PC where did not open that document before (without cache images), disconnect the network connection, then try to open the document and see whether the images still showing there.

Thanks for your comments. I can remove the links as described, and I verified that the images are embedded on a different PC with internet disconnected.

I would like to run a command or script to remove all the links as there are very many to remove individually. I found out how to do that:

Thanks for your assistance and clearing up this question.

I found that to remove all links in one shot, you select the entire document and then press the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+Shift+F9." Pressing this keyboard shortcut will unlink all of the selected fields.
