How to Insert Links in Google Docs

Insert Links

A hyperlink in Docs acts just like one you see on a webpage or email. When you hyperlink text or graphics, they become clickable and connect you to outside information or to somewhere else within your document.

Insert a Link

  1. Select the text where you want to insert a link.
  2. Click Insert on the menu bar.
  3. Select Link.
    Insert Links

    Press Ctrl + K.

    A small pop-up appears. You can either add a link to an outside website, or, like we want to do here, link to a heading within this document.

  4. Enter or select a web address or select a heading.
    Insert Links
  5. The text field is where you can specify the text that will appear as the link. If text was selected when inserting the link, the Text field is populated with that. You could add or change the display text here, if needed.

  6. Enter link text (optional).
  7. Click Apply.
    Insert Links

The link is added. When the text cursor is in the link text, a popup will appear with the link address, as well as options to change it or remove it.
