Hyperlinks are digital links to other locations, usually addresses on the Internet. Hypertext is text that contains a hyperlink. When you have a clickable link with a web address in it, that is a hyperlink. When you have clickable text that takes you to a web address, that is hypertext. Microsoft Office refers to both as "hyperlinks." But while hyperlinks insert automatically when you type a web address, hypertext must be set by making a "customised hyperlink."
