Linking HTML text using Dreamweaver is very simple:
An HTML hyperlink is also known as an anchor or anchor text. It can be used to link text and/or images to other web pages or resources found on the Internet or within a local directory. In Dreamweaver, they refer to it as a “Link” in the Property Inspector.
Linking text using Dreamweaver’s Property Inspector link field:
1. Open your HTML document in Dreamweaver.
2. Find the text you want to link and highlight it with your cursor.
The example below shows text “Home Page” I highlighted in Dreamweaver:

3. With text already highlighted, locate the Property Inspector at the bottom of your display. There you will find the Link field shown in A below. Either manually type-in a URL location of the file you are linking to or Browse for the file by clicking the folder icon B.
