Hyperlinks are helpful when a piece of writing needs more context or evidence. However, in some cases, users need a piece of writing without any embedded links.
For Google Docs users removing multiple links at once might be a bit tricky since the tool doesn’t offer a straightforward option for this action.

The text you copied will appear as if you had typed it directly into the application you're pasting into.
You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+V for Windows and Cmd+Shift+V for Mac.
