What is Hyperlink?

A Hyperlink is a word, text or picture on a web page or in a document, that is clickable. This hyperlink is often highlighted and when users click on it, they get to another web page/document or different category on the same web page or document. A hyperlink uses an HTML code to define a targeted place (different web page, new window, category or document).

There are different types of hyperlinks, for example, inline links and anchor hyperlinks.
