How to remove /category/ from wordpress URL?

Advert test
When you create a category and use the built-in menu feature in wordpress to display category links, I want to know if it's possible to remove /category/ from the URL.
Sure, you can use the link fine without /category/ in the URL... but the link (with category) still shows on the menu of the wordpress website.

The only way I can think of doing this is by hard coding it however I'm asking if there's another method.
