Hyperlinks in Word
You ever notice how you can click on
underlined words on a webpage and jump right to another page or right to
another spot on the current page? This is called a hyperlink and
you can do this in Word very easily.
If you want to jump to another place
in your document:
First go to that place (point A) and
click your left mouse button at the spot where you want to jump
TO. Then go to the Insert Menu and select Bookmark. In the box at
the top, give your bookmark a simple name, so you can remember it (in
this example, I used the word "test"). Now move your
mouse to the place you want people to jump FROM (point B) and click it
there and type something like "click here" and run your mouse
over these words to highlight them. Go back to your Insert menu
and choose Hyperlink.
You can see, in the top box, the words
"Click here" will be the text people see (since this is what I
highlighted before I opened this box). Below that, where it says
"Type the file or Web Page name:", type a pound sign (#),
followed by your bookmark's name (in my case, it's #test). Then
click on OK.
Now you will see the words "Click
here" are now blue and underlined and if you click on them, you
move directly to Point A.
If you want to jump to a whole
different document or an Internet webpage, you don't need the bookmark.
Simply highlight the text and go to the
above box and click on the File button to choose the other document you
want to jump to. Or, type in a webpage address (such as http://www.newbieclub.com)
and click OK. Now the hyperlink will take you to that document on
web page with one simple click!
Hang in there!
