Using Links

Links, or hyperlinks, are the elements you can click in documents that take you to other locations or objects, such as another Web page, a sound file, a movie, or a picture. We've already seen how to recognize a link in a document: You pass the pointer over it, and the pointer changes to a hand with a pointing finger. Here we'll learn how to add links to any Office document; check the next section for special considerations when you're creating Web pages.

To create a link:

1.
In Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, choose Insert > Hyperlink () (Figure 2.8). In Entourage, click and hold the Insert Hyperlink button in the toolbar at the top of the window (Figure 2.9).

Figure 2.8. Choose Insert > Hyperlink.


Figure 2.9. Click and hold the Insert Hyperlink button in Entourage.


In Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, the Insert Hyperlink dialog box appears (Figure 2.10). In Entourage, clicking and holding the Insert Hyperlink button produces a drop-down menu (Figure 2.11).

Figure 2.10. Fill in the Insert Hyperlink dialog box.

2.
Text in the dialog box explains your options. Choose the appropriate tab to link to a Web page or a document, or to set up a link that creates an e-mail message.

3.
In Entourage, you can choose from the current page that Internet Explorer is displaying, one from your list of favorites you've created, or one from the history of Web sites you've recently visited.
