How to save the position in a document so that I can return to that exact position easily later?
For example when I ctrl-click on an internal link in a Word document, it takes me to the target of that link, losing my original position. Or when I search for something woth F3 from a certain position, it jumps to the next occurence of the term. Every time I find it rather painful to get back to the position in the document where I've started from. Of course this is no issue for small documents, but for hundreds of pages, scanning back to the desired page could take some time. Now I am aware of the fact that I can check/enter the actual page number in Word, but I am looking for a both a general solution for other documents and a solution that can be activated by simple keystrokes.
Is there a general method to handle such nuisances by e.g. saving a certain position in a document with a keystroke which I can use later to return that position? Maybe multiple positions saved with different keys? Is there a general method to handle .doc, .pdf, .txt, or any other file, perhaps even webpages displayed by a browser? If there is no general way to do this, perhaps only in Microsoft Word?
