Jump to a scroll position on a web page

If you want a link to a web page and jump to a particular scroll position on the page, you can make a simple adjustment to the web address. On the web page you're linking to, right click and select 'View Page Source' (in Chrome), or just 'View Source' in Internet Explorer. Look for an anchor point and its associated name with the reference: <a href="

After the page's URL enter a hash tag followed by the anchor position's name (without quotes). See for example:

Clicking on this link will not take us to top of the Wikipedia page for Thomas More, but instead bring us directly to the section discussing his legacy. It is possible to link to any position on a web page which has a '<a' anchor.
