Use the Link web part

When you add a modern page to a site, you add and customize web parts, which are the building blocks of your page. This article describes the Link web part.

Note: The Link web part is not available in SharePoint Server 2019.

Use the Link web part to add a link, along with its preview, to an internal or external page, video, image, or document.

Add a link

  1. If you're not in edit mode already, click Edit at the top right of the page.

  2. Hover your mouse above or below an existing web part or under the title region, click Circled plus sign used to add a modern web part to a page , and then select the Link web part.

  3. Paste the link to the page, video, image, or document. In addition to the link text, a preview of the item will display on the page if available. To remove either the link text or the preview, click the x next to it.
