Using Bookmarks In Word 2002

My seven-year-old son loves bookmarks. Every time we visit the bookstore, he buys a new one. It wasn’t until he developed this little habit that I remembered exactly how useful they really are. Not only for saving your place in a good book, but also for saving your place in a Word document. You can place bookmarks into a Word document so you can easily and quickly find your place again. For example, if you’re reading through a lengthy document and stumble across some piece of information you would like to revisit, you can simply use a bookmark.

To create a bookmark in Word:

  1. Click the place in your document where you want to insert a bookmark.
  2. Click Bookmark from the Insert menu.
  3. Type in a name for the bookmark and click Add.

When you want to locate one of your bookmarks:

  1. Open the Find and Replace dialog box by clicking Find from the Edit menu and selecting the Go To tab or by pressing F5.
  2. Type the name of the bookmark in the Enter page number field.
  3. Click the Go To button.
