The Go To dialog box is perhaps one of the most underutilized features in Word. When you want to jump directly to a particular item in your document, you don't have to scroll around looking for it. There are several ways opening up the Go To dialog box. One is I could drop down the Find button in the upper right-hand corner and choose Advanced Find, Go To is on the third tab. Even more directly, if I click on the Find drop down again, I can also go straight to Go To from here. But here are some other ways; you can click where it says down in the bottom left-hand side Page 1 of whatever number of pages you have and that will take you straight to Go To.
You can also click on the Browse by Object button and the first option is Go To. Last, you can also Press F5. The Go To dialog box gives you many of the same options that we explored in the Browse by Object video earlier in this course. But it has a few more as well. Go To allows you to jump to a particular Page. So I can jump straight to Page 20. If your document is broken up into Sections, you can go straight to, for example, section 2. If you want to jump to a particular Line, you can click in the box and type in the line number.
You can jump to a particular Bookmark, you can look for Comments; you can jump to a particular Footnote, I'll Go To footnote number 4. You can also choose between Endnotes, Fields, Tables, Graphics and Images, Mathematical Equations. Object gives you a list of anything you've paste in from other programs using Insert Object. And you can also select Headings. Now what's neat about this is, I am going to go back to Footnote and right now we're on footnote number 4, but you can also move forward and backward by putting in a plus (+) or a minus sign (-) to jump you, let's say I want to go back to Footnotes, I can put in -2 and it will take me back 2.
So when you know exactly where in your document you want to jump, you can't beat Go To for taking you there.
