LibreOffice Version: (x64) hyperlink

I am using LibreOffice Version: (x64) and I can't seem to figure out what combination of keys I need to hold in conjuction with a left click of the mouse to open a hyperlink in a document.  I can see that the text has a link by hovering the mouse over the text as it then lists the link, but it would be helpful if I could just click on it and it worked as it should.  I just don't know how to do so.

Try CTRL and left click.

Neither option seems to be working.  How do I go to the option so that I can see the exact URL of the hyperlink without hovering over it?
Unfortunately I am still at work and don't have LibreOffice installed on any of the computers.

In Microsoft Office applications if you press Alt and F9 keys it reveals the code that causes things like automatically inserted dates and page numbers to show as they do, and URLs to work as hyperlinks.  The expression is to "show fields".  Press Alt and F9 again and it toggles it back to how it should display.  If Alt and F9 don't work in LibreOffice, try Ctrl and F9.
Thank you Ryan
