How To Create An Anchor Text Link In A Word 2007/2010 Document

In this tutorial, we will explain how to create an anchor text link in a Word 2007/2010 document.  Anchor text links give your document a good look instead of typing a full lengthy URL. For example, it's better to use SpoTHT as an anchor text instead of typing http://www.spotht.com.
Using anchor text links is more professional and will give your readers more information about the resulting page.

Creating A Hyperlink Using Anchor Text

1. Launch Word 2007/2010 and type any text you want, or open a ready text document.

2. Select now with your mouse cursor the word(s) you want to create a hyperlink for.

3. Right-click on your selection, a menu appears, click Hyperlink.

4. In the window that pops-up, insert the URL you want to link to in the Address text box, or you can select an internal file or webpage, then click OK.

5. That's it. To test your anchor text link, press CTRL + Click.

How can we add the hyper link in the Table of Contents? I wanted to format all my chapter headers with hyperlinks, and tried to work specifically on the automatically-created Table of Contents so as to get to the chapter page, with a link created automatically.
