The Link component lets us navigate to a screen using a path instead of a screen name based on the linking options. It preserves the default behavior of anchor tags in the browser such as Right click -> Open link in new tab", Ctrl+Click/⌘+Click etc.

It uses a Text component under the hood.


import { Link } from '@react-navigation/native';

// ...

function Home() {
return <Link to="/profile/jane">Go to Jane's profile</Link>;

If you want to use your own custom touchable, you can use useLinkProps instead

The Link component accepts the same props as useLinkProps
