There should be an image here!Why do you use bookmarks when reading a book? So you can easily pick up where you left off or jump to a specific part of the book at a later time. The same goes for bookmarks in Microsoft Word. You create bookmarks so you can quickly jump to a specific page. And Let me tell you — bookmarks come in very handy for large Word documents!

Creating a bookmark in Word 2010 is a snap!

  1. Open your Word document.
  2. Place the cursor in the location where you want to add the bookmark.
  3. Click the Insert tab.
  4. Click Bookmark within the Links group.
  5. Type in a name for the bookmark and click Add.

That’s it — you’re done. Now you can quickly return to that location in your document using the newly created bookmark.
