Go To

Why isn’t there a way to find the next table, section, image, bookmark or heading etc.?

The Go To tab of the Find and Replace dialog box enables you to easily find locations or objects in the document that you can’t find with the Navigation pane or Find and Replace. The Find and Replace dialog box has three tabs: Find, Replace, and Go To. Press Ctrl+G (or F5) to open Find and Replace dialog box with Go To tab selected. Or, click Home tab and choose Find > Go To from the Editing group.

To go to a specific location, choose it from the Go to what list
