A relative link doesn't require the full URL of a file located on the same server. For an absolute file link, you would include the full Web address, which would include "http" and "www." Absolute links are required for files located on a different server and are optional for files located on the same server. Relative links requires only the name of the file and where it is located.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Use the "Select" tool by clicking on "Tools," "Select & Zoom." While holding down your mouse, drag to select the text or image from which you want to create a link.

  2. 2

    Right-click on the selection and click "Create Link" from the pop-out menu.

  3. 3

    Click the "Open File" radio box in the Create Link dialogue box. Click "Next" and browse to your file. Click "Select," "New Window" and "OK."
