How to Create a Hyperlink to a Specific Part in the Same Word Document

By adding hyperlinks within your Word document, you can give your readers instant access to the information mentioned in another part of the same document, without the need to repeat the same information on different pages.

When it comes to hyperlinks, most people would think of connecting two web pages together. However, that’s not all a hyperlink can do. With a little tweaking, you can also set up hyperlinks to point to a specific part on the same document. You can link to pictures, headers, graphics or other elements in your document. Now, when you refer to something elsewhere in the same document, you can jump from one part of a document to another part. That way, we won’t have to scroll around to find the specific section, nor do we need to insert the repeated information.
