Using bookmarks in Microsoft Word

Almost everybody has worked with a document that is more than 10 pages long. When working with these long documents it can be extremely difficult to find the information you want.

You can solve this problem by using Bookmarks in Microsoft Word, a feature that makes it easy to navigate through documents in a structured approach, so you can find exactly the information you need. A bookmark acts as a “stop sign” within your document making it easy to revisit it at your convenience. Once you have your bookmarks in place you can either add a hyperlink directly to your bookmark or navigate to it using the Find and Replace Tool.

To add a bookmark:

  1. In your document, click where you want to place a bookmark.
  2. On the Insert menu, click Bookmark.
  3. When the Bookmark dialog box opens, name your bookmark.
  4. Then click Add.


To find your bookmark:

  1. Press F5 to open the Find and Replace dialog box.
  2. Click the Go To tab, and type the bookmark name in the Enter page number field.
  3. Click the Go To button to get to the information you bookmarked.

To add a hyperlink that links to your bookmark:

  1. From the Insert menu select Hyperlink.
  2. Type in the Text To Display box what you want the hyperlink to say.
  3. Click on Bookmark button and browse to the bookmark you want.
  4. Click OK twice.
