This question already has an answer here:

There are many questions and answers surrounding how to make the Table of Contents content clickable. I am wondering how to make a reference to the Table of Contents and create a link elsewhere in the document to click on and go back to the table of contents.

I have tried giving the Table of Contents its own label via \tableofcontents\label{toc} and then using a reference link \ref{toc} but this produces the error: ./project.tex:133: Package hyperref Warning: Suppressing empty link on input line 133.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This can be done with hypertarget and hyperlink from the hyperref package. See the example below:


Title Page\newpage

% Add a link target to the TOC itself

% Print the TOC

% Sections with a hyperlink to TOC
\section[One]{One. Go to \hyperlink{toc}{TOC}}
Text that points to \hyperlink{toc}{Table of Contents}.

Something like this:




\hypertarget{MyToc}{}  % Make an anchor to the toc


\chapter{Yet another Dummy}

Jump to my incredible \hyperlink{MyToc}{Table of contents}


Change the \documentclass{scrbook} at will.
