Every time you copy text from the Internet and paste it into Google Docs, all hyperlinks that are transferred with it are transferred. Here you can read how you can paste text without hyperlinks or remove links that are already embedded in a document.
Pasting Text in Documents with Paste Without Formatting
The first option to remove hyperlinks is to prevent them from being transferred in the first place. Prevent the links from entering your file by using the & # 39; Paste Without Formatting & # 39; to rid the embedded URL of all formatting as you paste it into your document.
After selecting text that contains one or two hyperlinks, launch a browser, go to your Google Docs homepage and open a new document.
Click "Edit" in the menu bar and then select "Paste without formatting."
You can also use the shortcut Ctrl + Shift + V (Windows / Chrome OS) or Cmd + Shift + V (macOS) to achieve the same "Paste without formatting" function.

Remove hyperlinks already in your document
Unfortunately, Google Docs does not automatically support the possibility of removing multiple hyperlinks at once. So you must manually disconnect each one separately. This is how.
Start a browser and open a Google Docs document that already contains some text with hyperlinks in it.
Click anywhere on the text that contains a hyperlink and when the dialog box opens click the "Unlink icon.
Repeat this process for each hyperlink from which you want to remove
Disable automatic link detection
By default, hyperlinks are automatically generated when you enter an email or URL in a Google Docs document However, if you do not want them to be inserted automatically, the last thing you can do is disable the automatic detection of links from your document's preferences.
Although this does not prevent hyperlinks from appearing in your document when you paste text, prevent e-mail addresses and URL links from being displayed when you don't expect them to be there.
Start a browser, open a Google Docs file and click on Tools> Preferences in the menu bar.
Remove the check mark next to "Automatically detect links" to disable this function. Click "OK" to return to your document.
Now, when you paste e-mail addresses or URLs in your document, they no longer appear automatically as a link.
