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!
- Open your Word document.
- Place the cursor in the location where you want to add the bookmark.
- Click the Insert tab.
- Click Bookmark within the Links group.
- 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.
