1. Set bookmarks in Word

1. Set bookmarks in Word

In our small example, we have created 2 sections of text.

The goal should be that we can click on a section of text, or a word, and then land directly in the 2nd text section.

First, we set a text marker in the target section.

For this purpose we should mark the headline or the beginning of the section, and then go to the tab: “Paste” on “Bookmark” and give our bookmark a unique, and unique (if we later want to use more than one bookmark) name.

2. Set internal links in Word.

2. Set internal links in Word.

In the previous step, we set our goal, where we want to land later.

Next we just have to define which text components should refer to this goal.

To do this, mark the word next, or the text section that represents the starting point, in the tab: “Paste” on “Link” and in the following dialog window select: “Link to: Current document”.

There, the desired text marker out, and confirm your choice with “OK”.

From now on, your document is dynamic and you can click on your internal link while holding down the CTRL key + left mouse button.

In this way, you can jump through a document by skillfully setting internal bookmarks and links without having to scroll through page by page text.

Of course, you can apply the same principle to images or shapes that you have inserted in your document.

3. Run link in Word directly

3. Run link in Word directly

By the way, you can only execute links in Word by using CTRL + Left mouse button. By the way, this is a security setting that Microsoft installed for a good reason and set as default.

Because as someone who did not create this document, I can assume that the link points to an expected point in the document, but I can not rely on it.

It is also quite possible that such a link to a self-executing exe. File refers to a dubious website or other harmful to my PC content.

Therefore, as soon as you move the mouse over the link, the destination of the link to the control is displayed in a small context window.

To override the default, and click through your document just as you would on an internet page, just go to the tab:

“File” – “Options” – “Advanced”

and look there in the section editing options the entry: “CTRL + click to open links”

and deactivate the hook there.
