What Is PDF Bookmark

In the digital world, a bookmark is a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) stored for later retrieval. It is typically employed to save web pages that a user wants to return to later without having to remember or type in the full URL.

A PDF bookmark is a navigational tool that enables you to quickly jump to a specific section of a PDF document. Similar to a table of contents in a book, it lists the headings or sections of a document. This makes it easier to locate specific information in large files.
