Hyperlinks are references to data. These references can be a website, an email ID, or a particular page in a document. A user reading a document can click the hyperlink and visit another page. This is a pretty useful feature, as you can provide more information with one click. Users who don't want to follow it can skip it. You can have two types of hyperlinks, the ones you have visited and the ones you don't have. The hyperlinks you visit are the ones you clicked on before, and the hyperlinks you didn't visit are the ones you didn't visit. Usually in Word, both are displayed in two different predefined colors. These are variations of blue. So for some people it's not easy to tell them apart at a glance. Therefore, you can change the color of the hyperlinks as you like.
