"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You don;t need to use regedit.
Hyperlink option can be disabled in Word itself.

In Office 2010 and later: just click > Options > Proofing.

In Office 2007:

Click the Microsoft Office button, and then click Options > Proofing.

Click AutoCorrect Options, and then click the AutoFormat As You Type tab.

Clear the Internet and network paths with hyperlinks check box.

You can only disable hyperlink warning:
Navigate to the following location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Security
If it does not exist, create it.
Create a new DWORD -> DisableHyperlinkWarning. Double click the same DWORD to modify:
Input the Value data as 1 to disable suspicious hyperlink warnings or 0 to enable them (default setting).

For disabling hyperlinks at all there is only one solution (via MS Word options).

You should find all the information you need to clone Office settings to a new installation here ....
There is a free program, called CloneApp that allows you to easily back up configuration files in program directories and the Registry for many popular Windows programs. It supports a large number of programs, including many versions of Microsoft Office

You can also try to find a GPO template that would suit you.

Tom CieslikIT EngineerCommented:
I saw that this is posiible in Outlook.

You can change the setting via modifying registry.


DWORD: pgrfafo_25_1

Value: 1 to enable; 0 to disable

I try to use analogy and create same settings for Word but it's not working.
I don't know if this is possible since there is nothing about this setting in any Microsoft Forums
Hello ThereSystem AdministratorCommented:
As I said before there is no known and related registry entry for this. I guess there is no GPO for this either.
