New Link Checker for Microsoft Word is out: the quickest way to fix broken links in your document

Little helper to manage links in Word files

This small yet powerful tool comprises such functions that ease the work with both links and cross-references. It is designed to search for links, edit and delete them in a split second even within a large document. In addition, it allows you to export the found links to another Word or Excel file. And the latest version has even more to offer.

Latest version of the Link Checker for Microsoft Word

What's new in Link Checker

Our team of developers work hard to create and upgrade the add-ins that can be of great use to you. Link Checker is no exception. So, here's a list of all the changes that make the recent version a must-have.

Increased tool speed

This major improvement allows you to find links much faster and get more precise results. With a quicker response now it takes only a few seconds to scan even large data amounts. It really saves your time and nerves.

Know your links: results message and filter button

When the search is complete, you will see a pop-up message. It will show the total number of links in your Word document and how many of them of each type your file contains. In case you decide to work with valid, broken or suspicious links only, the updated tool makes it possible to filter the results.

No links left behind

If for some reason you abort the scanning process, Link Checker will show you all the links that remain unchecked. You will be able to filter, edit, delete them, or start scanning again.

Friendlier UI

A nicer design with more pleasant visual elements will contribute to an easy and satisfying experience of working with documents.

Microsoft Word 2007-2016

Of course, the add-in is fully compatible with Word 2007-2016.

Make sure to update your Link Checker to enjoy its new features, increased speed and design in any Word version you use!

    When running the trial version in Windows 10, many links were incorrectly reported as broken in a document with more than 2000 links. The reported error was "The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel."
    How can I workaround or fix this.
    Which DLL do I need to update?

    Best regards,
