Troubleshooting Hyperlink Shortcut Issue in Excel Web Version

If the hyperlink shortcut is not working in the Excel web version, you can try the following steps to troubleshoot the issue:

  1. Check the hyperlink format: Ensure that the hyperlink is correctly formatted. The hyperlink should start with "http://" or "https://" for web addresses, or "mailto:" for email addresses.

  2. Verify the hyperlink address: Double-check the hyperlink address to ensure it is correct. Make sure there are no typos or missing characters.

  3. Clear browser cache: Clearing the browser cache can sometimes resolve issues with hyperlink shortcuts. You can usually find this option in the browser settings or preferences.

  4. Try a different browser: If the hyperlink shortcut is still not working, try opening the Excel web version in a different browser to see if the issue persists. This can help determine if the problem is specific to the browser you are currently using.

  5. Update the browser: Ensure that you are using the latest version of your browser. Updating the browser can fix compatibility issues and improve performance.

  6. Check for browser extensions: Some browser extensions or add-ons can interfere with the functionality of web applications. Try disabling any extensions that might be affecting the Excel web version.

If none of these steps resolve the issue, it may be helpful to provide more specific details about the problem you are experiencing, such as any error messages or specific actions you are taking when the hyperlink shortcut fails to work.
