How to Use Bookmarks in Outlook


When using Outlook, a Microsoft email software, it is possible to insert a link into a mail message. The easiest way to do this is to type the Website or e-mail address and press "Spacebar" or "Enter" on the keyboard. It is also possible to insert a link from a bookmark into the mail message.

Creating the Bookmark Destination

  • Select the text or item that you want to assign as a bookmark.

  • Click "Bookmark" in the "Links" group on the "Insert" tab.

  • Assign a name to the bookmark you are creating by typing a name into the "Bookmark name" field. The name must begin with a letter and you cannot include spaces in the name. Use the "underscore" key to create a space between words if desired.

  • Click "Add" to create the bookmark.

Adding the Link to the Message

  • Select some text or an object to be displayed as a link. You can type a title or select text within a paragraph that you wish to act as a link to your bookmark.

  • Right-click on the selected text or object and click "Hyperlink" from the menu.

  • Click "Place in This Document" under the "Link to" option.

  • Select the bookmark you wish to include in the message.
