How to add, delete, locate or change bookmarks in MS Word easily

To add bookmarks in a Word document to return anywhere for further editing or for any other reason, select the text or item to which you want to assign a bookmark, or just click where you want to insert your bookmark. On the Insert tab, in the Links group, click Bookmark. Under Bookmark name, type or select a name, and click Add.

When you add a bookmark to a block of text, Word surrounds the text with square brackets. When you change a bookmarked item, make sure that you change the text or graphics inside the brackets.

To display bookmark brackets and easily identify all your bookmarked locations, go to Options > Advanced, and at the Show document content find and select the Show bookmarks check box. You can cut, copy, and paste items that are marked with a bookmark. You can also add text to, and delete text from, marked items.

To go to a specific bookmark easily, on the Insert tab, in the Links group, click “Bookmark” and select either Name or Location to sort the list of bookmarks in your document. Click the name of the bookmark that you want to go to, and then press the Go To button.

To delete a bookmark, on the Insert tab, in the Links group, click Bookmark. Select the name of the bookmark you want to delete, and then click Delete. To delete both the bookmark and the bookmarked item (such as a block of text or other element), select and delete the whole item.
