Convert active email address link to regular text
I have seen a lot of resumes and some of them have an active email address link (the email address of a person appears in blue with a line underneath it). To return this to regular text follow these steps.
Move your mouse cursor over the email address link and click your right mouse button.
A menu will appear and you can select Remove Hyperlink from it. The hyperlinked email address will return to normal text.
