I have a folder with a Word (2003, opened in compatibility mode in 2010) file. All the images in this file are linked and reside in the same folder. When I move this folder to a different computer all the links are broken. When I select the image place holders and press F9 the link is restored. There must be a way to restore all links at the same time? Having to go through all the images one by one is pretty tedious...

Select all text to update all fields at once. Ctrl+A and then pressing F9 should do the trick.
