Discover how to navigate between pages or lines with the Go To tool or jump through headings by using the Navigation Pane. Key topics covered here include how to use wildcard codes to perform approximate searches in Word; how to search for variable spellings, specific prefixes, and even half-complete numbers; and how to use the Advanced Search options, which allow you to specify the word's case or format and even search for prefixes, suffixes or multiple forms of your search query.
