In every Microsoft Office version, by default, when you type URL in a Word document, it creates a hyperlink.

If you do not want the URL to be a hyperlink, you need to manually undo it each time.

But there is another, maybe easier way with adjust AutoCorrect settings. It is easier if you do not like to undo hyperlink manually every time. In AutoCorrect settings you can turn off hyperlink which is by default on, and it is permanent until you change your mind and you want to change it back

Click Tools , than AutoCorrect Options.

. When the window opens, find Auto Formats, click on it, and uncheck Internet and Network Paths with Hyperlinks,

then in the same window find AutoFormat As You Type click on it, and uncheck Internet and Network Paths with Hyperlinks

I hope you are satisfied with the response that I provide to you, and that it was helpful

I also get annoyed sometimes when the link I’m typing in Microsoft Office Word is automatically turned into a hyperlink. If you don’t want your links or email address automatically converted into a hyperlink in Microsoft Office Word, you can turn it off. To turn off this feature, in Microsoft Office Word, click on the “Office” button and select “Word Options.”

On the next screen, select “Proofing” on the left pane and click “AutoCorrect Options.” In “AutoCorrect” screen, select “AutoFormat As You Type” tab and uncheck “Internet and network paths with hyperlinks.” Click “OK” then check if it works.

Microsoft Office Word disable hyperlink

This time no more hyperlinks will be created when you type an email address or even an entire URL.
