# Inserting link to help page

How do I insert a link to a particular help page in Mathematica? Insert > Hyperlink... does not seem to offer this option. In particular, I am trying to link to guide/MatrixDecompositions.

You can do it with

Hyperlink[
"Matrix Decompositions",
"paclet:guide/MatrixDecompositions",
Appearance -> "Frameless",
BaseStyle -> {"Text"}]


Use:

paclet:guide/MatrixDecompositions

in the Destination notebook: | Other notebook or URL:

section of the Insert->Hyperlink dialog.

• Yes, that works. Thanks. Importantly, it seems to be platform-independent, whereas hard links to files in Documentation don't work across mac, linux, windows. – Paul Cally Feb 27 '17 at 0:09
