How do I put a link to a specific point in a YouTube video in a Microsoft Word document?

I recently got this question:

“How do I put a link to a specific point in a YouTube video in a Microsoft Word document?”

This is called a timestamp.

First thing – watch the YouTube video and pause at the exact spot in the video you want to timestamp, then right-click on the video.

From the menu choose Copy video URL at current time.

Then paste that link into your Word document.

Note: You can also paste the link into email or a PowerPoint Presentation.

When the link is clicked, it will open a browser window to the YouTube video at that exact spot.

Another way to create a URL that begins the clip at a certain point on the timeline – play the video and click the Pause button when you get to the part you want to use as a starting point.

Click the Share button below the video.Underneath the web address box that appears, turn on the checkbox next to “Start at:” and the current time code.

Once you click the “Start at:” box, the video’s web address is appended with that start-time code, and that is the link you can share.
