Removing an HTML Link
To remove an html link, click the link within your Page/Post that you’d like to remove to display the inline link toolbar. Once the toolbar appears, click the Remove button () to remove the link. Alternatively, click the link to position the cursor somewhere within it and then click the Remove link button () on the main Visual Editor toolbar. If you want to remove a link from an image, simply click the image once to select it and then click the Remove link button () on the main Visual Editor toolbar. If the html link is linking to an uploaded file or image, clicking the Remove link button won’t remove or delete that file, it will simply remove the hyperlink.
