How to print hyperlinks in the Word document

Word 2016
Microsoft Word displays hyperlinks as a blue underlined text, as defined by the Hyperlink style. It shows only the fraction of the URL or anchor text like “click here”, and you need to click Ctrl+K or use the popup menu to open the Link dialog to see the full URL. If you see something like { HYPERLINK https://www.officetooltips.com } on printing, you need to uncheck the Print field codes instead of their values option.
