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:
- Click the place in your document where you want to insert a bookmark.
- Click Bookmark from the Insert menu.
- Type in a name for the bookmark and click Add.
When you want to locate one of your bookmarks:
- Open the Find and Replace dialog box by clicking Find from the Edit menu and selecting the Go To tab or by pressing F5.
- Type the name of the bookmark in the Enter page number field.
- Click the Go To button.
