Links in WordPress dashboard on local wamp install
Usually that only occurs if you had active links prior to version 3.5, and then the link manager would carry over and remain visible during any subsequent WordPress upgrades. As for how it got turned on, if you didn’t import a database, it’s hard to say. Two things you might try, given that it’s a brand new installation:
a) you could leave the files as they are and just clear the database tables, then re-run the install routine. Check for the link manager right after installation, then check for it after you activate each new plugin to see if one of those may have turned it on.
b) you can just turn it off. Log in, then type yoursite.com/wp-admin/options.php in your browser. You should find a setting there labeled “link_manager_enabled”. 0 turns it off, 1 leaves it on. The Save Changes button is at the bottom of the page.
