You can set up to 200 bookmarks on various couples in your family file so you can jump back to them easily.  These bookmarks are saved when you exit the program and reloaded the next time you use Legacy so they are always available.  There are two types of bookmarks, regular and Quick Bookmarks.  

Quick Bookmarks
At the bottom of the main window, below the Family or Pedigree View and just above the bottom status bar, are three bookmark boxes labeled with a small 1, 2, and 3.  These are called Quick Bookmarks.  These can be used to set three frequently used bookmarks that are always visible.

To Set a Quick Bookmark:
Make sure the person you want to put the bookmark on is highlighted and then right-click inside any of the three boxes.  The name appears in the box.

To Jump to a Quick Bookmark:
Click on the desired name in the Quick Bookmark box.  That person is displayed (along with the spouse that was showing when the Quick Bookmark was set).

To clear a Quick Bookmark:
While holding down the Ctrl key, right-click in the box you want to clear.  The name disappears.

To Change a Quick Bookmark:
To change an existing Quick Bookmark to show the currently highlighted individual, right click on the bookmark box containing the individual you wish to replace.

Regular Bookmarks
You set up to 200 bookmarks on various people.  

To Set a Bookmark:
