# How can I make a clickable Table of Contents? [duplicate]

How to make clickable links and cross-references in pdfs produced by LaTeX?

I need links for the Table of Contents, so that I can navigate fast to different sections. I apparently need some package.

I tried the package url unsuccessfully.

It is hilarious that this question was given a duplicate badge when it was asked one year before than the other one. This question was also searchable in Google during the time when the other question was asked. There is also more thorough solution in this question than the other one. –  Masi Aug 31 at 8:32

The way to go is the hyperref package.

Don't miss out on the

\hypersetup{linktocpage}


option to only link the page numbers and not the entire table of contents; when links are being coloured the default behaviour can be a bit overwhelming.

Not true. It's better when the entire line links. –  alamodey Feb 18 '09 at 1:13
As clickable links, it's better to have the entire line. But if you've got links printed in hot pink, then it looks mighty ugly to have an entire page coloured like that. –  Will Robertson Feb 23 '09 at 23:08
A solution to keep the whole line a link (easier to click), while not having the whole TOC colored, is to change hyperref's linkcolor just for the TOC. –  JW. May 28 at 19:28

The package listed is correct. This is a more detailed account of setup though:

\usepackage{color}   %May be necessary if you want to color links
\usepackage{hyperref}
\hypersetup{
colorlinks=true, %set true if you want colored links
linktoc=all,     %set to all if you want both sections and subsections linked
linkcolor=blue,  %choose some color if you want links to stand out
}


Once this is all setup, you should just be able to include the

\tableofcontents


sometime after

\begin{document}


and be all set
