Bookmark large documents

Long Word documents can really give you a workout. Sometimes I see people who need to add something to the middle of a long Word document frantically scrolling with their mouse like a hamster on a wheel.

There is a better way. You can set bookmarks anywhere you want in the document and zip right back to that spot with just a few clicks.

Here’s how to set a bookmark:

1. Move your cursor to the place in your document where you want to set the bookmark.

2. On the Insert tab in the ribbon, click on the Bookmark icon located in the Links section.


3. Give your bookmark a descriptive name and click Add.


To zip back to that spot, just click the Bookmark icon again, select the bookmark you want, and click the Go To button. The best part is that, unlike the placeholders you insert in real books, these can't fall out.
