What are Bookmarks used for in Microsoft Word

Bookmarks are a useful feature in Microsoft Word that allow you to mark a specific location or a range of text in your document. You can use bookmarks to create links, cross-references, indexes, tables of contents, and more. Bookmarks can also help you navigate through long documents or jump to important sections.

To create a bookmark, select the text or place the cursor where you want to insert the bookmark. Then, go to the Insert tab and click on Bookmark in the Links group. A dialog box will appear where you can type a name for your bookmark. The name must start with a letter and cannot contain any spaces or special characters. Click Add to create the bookmark.

To go to a bookmark, go to the Insert tab and click on Bookmark again. A dialog box will show you a list of all the bookmarks in your document. Select the one you want and click Go To. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+G to open the Go To tab of the Find and Replace dialog box, where you can enter the bookmark name and click Go To.

To delete a bookmark, go to the Insert tab and click on Bookmark. A dialog box will show you a list of all the bookmarks in your document. Select the one you want to delete and click Delete. You can also delete a bookmark by deleting the text or location that it marks.

Bookmarks are not visible by default, but you can show them by clicking on File – Options – Advanced – Show document content and checking the box for Show bookmarks. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+F5 to toggle the display of bookmarks.
