However, that is just for one, temporary marker.

Alt+n then k allows you to add multiple bookmarks with separate names in Word documents, and control+g, shift+tab to the list, press b, for Bookmark, tab and either select or type in the name then press alt+g, followed by escape to land on your chosen bookmark.


Lots of keystrokes, but if you want to have multiple bookmarks in a very long document, it works well.

Is there a key command for inserting a bookmark?

Hi John,


I'd insert a bookmark at the place you want to leave off reading - the option is on the ribbon's insert tab.


When you reopen your document to resume reading, turn on JAWS quick keys with JAWS key+z, and navigate to the next bookmark by pressing the letter b until you land on the one you want.

I wish to read a book in Word document format.

Can someone please tell me how I can indicate in the document where I am so I can close the document and when opened again I can find where I left off?

Any help would be  appreciated.


Thanks in advance,
