This is incorrect. There was *never* such an item in context menu in any
module (Writer/Calc/Draw/Impress); to be sure, I just checked with major
releases from 2011 till current ones. I also checked OOo 3.2 and AOO 4.1
to be sure. I suppose you are mistaken, thinking about some other
software that had that.
OTOH, for some time already we have Ctrl+K shortcut assigned to the
Insert->Hyperlink by default.

Tools->Customize has a "Context Menus" tab, where you may add the
respective command to a context menu.

Generally, one who wants to ask some question, or to suggest some
improvement, is welcome to open the project home page
(https://www.libreoffice.org/), click on GET HELP menu, and see the
various options listed there - basically, you may get some community
support (users helping other users answering the "how do I" kind of
questions) at https://ask.libreoffice.org/; and file a bug report /
enhancement request on https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/.
This mailing list is development-related, i.e. for "in which file
function Foo is implemented" kind of questions.
