When typing an Internet address you do not need to type http:// or even www. in the address. For example, if you wanted to visit Google you could just type google.com and press enter. To make things even quicker, if you’re visiting a .com address you can type google and then press ‘Ctrl + Enter’ to type out the full http://www.google.com address.
If you find some interesting text on a website that you wish to use and adapt into word, highlight and copy in the normal way first.
When you paste though, use the Paste Special Option to insert as Keep Text Only. That cuts out all the fancy formatting and hyperlinks that may be embedded, and leave you with fresh text to format according to your companies style guide.
