Tom’s Tutorials For Excel: Making Your Hyperlinks User-Friendly
When you put hyperlinks in cells on a worksheet, it’s a good practice to present them in a user-friendly, intuitive way. For example, the pictures show an original list of hyperlinked cells with their Microsoft-induced wordy screen tips.

Sub EditLinks()
Dim myHype As Hyperlink
Dim iLink As Integer, strText As String
iLink = 1
For Each myHype In Columns(1).Hyperlinks
strText = myHype.Parent.Text
myHype.TextToDisplay = "Link #" & iLink
myHype.ScreenTip = strText
iLink = iLink + 1
Next myHype
End Sub
