This feature is normally on by default but continue to learn how to turn it on and off:

1. Click on the More tab at the top of your course and select Filters
More tab at the top of the course and Filters in the drop down menu.

2. Scroll down to find the Activity names auto-linking and change from On by clicking on the drop-down menu from the arrow. Switching this to off will remove auto-linking for all pages in the course.
