How to Insert Bookmarks in Google Docs

Insert Bookmarks

A bookmark in Docs is just like a bookmark that you would use to mark your place in a novel. You use bookmarks to mark a location in a document so that you can quickly find and jump back to it.

Add a Bookmark

  1. Select the text you want to bookmark.

    You can select text, a select picture, or simply place the cursor at a specific location.

  2. Click Insert on the menu bar.
  3. Select Bookmark.
    Insert Bookmarks

The bookmark is added, and a bookmark symbol appears in the margin as a reminder.

  2. Click Insert on the menu bar.
  3. Select Link.
