Add or delete bookmarks in a Word document or Outlook message
A bookmark in Word works like a bookmark you might place in a book: it marks a place that you want to find again easily. You can enter as many bookmarks as you want in your document or Outlook message, and you can give each one a unique name so they’re easy to identify.
To add a bookmark, you first mark the bookmark location in your document. After that, you can jump to the location or add links to it within your document or Outlook message. You can also delete bookmarks from a document or Outlook message.
Bookmark the location
Select text, a picture, or a place in your document where you want to insert a bookmark.
Click Insert > Bookmark .
Under Bookmark name , type a name and click Add .
Note: Bookmark names need to begin with a letter. They can include both numbers and letters, but not spaces. If you need to separate words, you can use an underscore ( _ )—for example, First_heading .
Go to the bookmarked location
After creating your bookmarks, you can add links to them within your document or jump to them at any time.
Jump to a bookmark
Type Ctrl+G to open the Go To tab in the Find and Replace box. Under Go to what , click Bookmark . Enter or select the bookmark name, and then click Go To .
Link to a bookmark
You can also add hyperlinks that will take you to a bookmarked location in the same document.
Select the text or object you want to use as a hyperlink.
Under Link to , click Place in This Document .
In the list, select the heading or bookmark that you want to link to.
Note: To customize the Screen Tip that appears when you rest the pointer over the hyperlink, click ScreenTip , and then type the text that you want.
If you’re having any issues or problems with bookmarks, read about the various techniques to troubleshoot bookmarks .
Delete a bookmark
Click either Name or Location to sort the list of bookmarks in the document.
Click the name of the bookmark you want to delete, and then click Delete .
If you have inserted a hyperlink to the deleted bookmark, right-click the linked text and then click Remove Hyperlink .
Note: To delete both the bookmark and the bookmarked item (such as a block of text or other element), select the item, and then press Delete.

One response to “2 Correct Ways to Change a Bookmark Name in Your Word Document”
Thanks so much for this solution. It helped me a lot.
I made one change, since there was some slight difference in my ref field syntax that caused it not to match exactly. This changed line, about half way through your script, solved the problem:
Instead of: If strFieldCode = ” REF ” & strBookMarkName & ” \h ” Then
I used If InStr(strFieldCode, strBookMarkName) Then

How to Create and Use Bookmarks in Microsoft Word
To quickly jump to another spot in your document or mark important locations, here’s how to add and use bookmarks in Word.
Like in Google Docs , bookmarks in Microsoft Word are convenient ways to mark places in your document. You can link to a bookmark from another spot, letting you quickly jump to it when you need to. This is handy for both you and your reader.
Here, we’ll show you how to create, find, link to, and delete bookmarks in Word.
How to Create a Bookmark in Word
Adding a bookmark in Word takes nothing more than a few clicks. And you can bookmark text, an image, or a specific spot.
- Start by selecting an item or placing your cursor where you want the bookmark.
- In the pop-up window, enter a Bookmark name . You can use letters and numbers, but the name must begin with a letter, and you cannot use spaces. You can, however, use an underscore to separate words if you like.
- Click Add .
Now you have a bookmark attached to your item or document location. And you can continue to add more bookmarks the same way.
How to Find a Bookmark
We’ll show you how to link to a bookmark in your document, but first, it’s important to know how to find them without links.
- Head to the Home tab and click the arrow next to the Find button on the right side of the ribbon in the Editing section.
- For “Go to what,” pick Bookmark .
- For “Enter bookmark name,” type in the name or select a bookmark from the drop-down list.
- Click Go To .
- When you finish with the Go To box, hit Close .
This will take you directly to the bookmark you entered or selected.
How to Link to a Bookmark
The great thing about bookmarks is that you can link to them in other places in your document. This works like a table of contents in Word, where you click the section you want to visit.
- Select the text, picture, or another item in your document to place the link to the bookmark.
- Right-click the selected item and choose Link or go to the Insert tab and click Link in the Links section of the ribbon.
- In the pop-up window, select Place in This Document on the left.
- On the right, you’ll see a section labeled Bookmarks with those you’ve created listed. Pick the bookmark you want to link to.
You’ll see the item you selected linked with blue underlined text. To visit the bookmark, hold your Control key and click the link.
Delete a Bookmark in Word
If you create a bookmark that you want to remove later, this is a simple task. Go to the Insert tab and click Bookmark . You’ll see a list of your bookmarks in the box. Select the one you want to remove and click Delete .
You will not be asked to confirm once you hit Delete, so be sure you want to remove the bookmark.
Remove a Bookmark Link
If you linked text to a bookmark as we described earlier and then deleted the bookmark, you’d need to remove the link from the text manually. This will not happen automatically when you delete the bookmark.
Go to the linked text, right-click, and choose Remove Hyperlink .
If you choose not to remove the link from the text or forget, holding Control and clicking the link will do nothing.

Alternatively, you can click into the document to place the insertion mark cursor where you want to set the bookmark.

How to Use the Bookmarks Feature in Microsoft Word
You can use bookmarks in Microsoft Word to identify parts of a large document. This enables you to navigate and link to these sections. Here's how!
Using Microsoft Word's bookmarks, you can mark text, pictures, and places in your document that you want to return to. This is similar to underlining a passage or word in a book.
Instead of scanning through an entire document, bookmarks will help you to jump straight to the desired text, picture, or place. The bookmark feature is also available in Outlook, and you can add as many bookmarks as you like.
You can also name each bookmark for easy reference. In this article, you'll learn how to use bookmarks in Microsoft Word, along with tips on how to add bookmarks.
What Is a Bookmark in Microsoft Word?
A bookmark in Microsoft Word works with hyperlinks, allowing you to navigate to any specific place within the document. It functions like an internal link between sections of your document.
This is particularly useful for navigating lengthy documents. You can use bookmarks to jump from section to section without having to scroll through page after page of text. For instance, you can link topics in your table of contents to the exact pages where they begin using bookmarks.
With that being said, let's now see how to add and use a bookmark in Microsoft Word.
How to Add and Use Bookmarks in Microsoft Word
You can add a bookmark in Microsoft Word in three simple steps.
- First, select where you want the bookmark added.
- Next, insert the bookmark.

Just as you can add a bookmark, you can also delete a bookmark in Microsoft Word. Here's how:
- Open the Word document, click on Insert , then click on Bookmark .
- You'll have to repeat this process if you want to delete multiple bookmarks.
How to Remove a Link From a Deleted Bookmark
Even though you have deleted a bookmark, the link you added will still be there. Here's how to remove the link from a deleted bookmark in Microsoft Word.
- You should do this for every bookmark you delete.
If you don't, and you share the document, other readers may mistake them for active external links.
What Happens When You Copy-Paste, Cut and Delete, and Add to Bookmarks in Microsoft Word
You can copy-paste, cut and delete, and add to bookmarks in Microsoft Word. Here's what happens when you do:
When You Copy-Paste Bookmarks in Microsoft Word
If you copy all or part of a bookmark and paste elsewhere within the same document, the original retains its bookmarks, but the pasted copy doesn't.
On the other hand, if you copy and paste parts or all of a bookmark in another document, both documents will retain the bookmarks.
When You Cut and Delete Bookmarks in Microsoft Word
If you cut an entire marked item (text or picture) and paste it elsewhere within the same document, the item, and the bookmark move to that new location. If you delete part of a bookmark, the remaining text will retain the bookmark.
Add to Bookmarks
When you add text between two characters in a bookmark, it becomes part of the bookmark. The same thing happens when you add text or photos directly in front of a bookmark's opening bracket.
However, the addition will not be included in the bookmark when you add text or photos directly after the closing bracket.
