Many thanks for this fantastic website! Very very helpful! A question...is there any way to somehow memorize the shortcuts? Tip and tricks? Thaaaaanks! [Reply]

Reply by bernd on 8/30/2020:

the easiest way to remember is probably how they derive shortcuts from the function. Simple case is [B] for [B]old. Many times they intentionally or unintentionally put the shortcut cue in the middle for example [E] for C[e]nter text. Thanks for the kind words!

Comment #102: by Nitin K on 6/10/2020:

Thanks for such a wonderful collection of shortcuts. Do we have short cut for format picture in MS-Word and Ms-PowerPoint [Reply]

Print preview & current page short key [Reply]

Comment #99: by Joyce Marshall on 10/7/2018:

Thank you so much. I have been using the shortcut Alt/E/S to access Paste Special and then unformatted text. However, as soon as I do Alt/E I get the symbol é. Is there a fix for this please. [Reply]

Reply by Jan on 3/14/2019:

Alt-E is most probably assigned as shortcut to this symbol. Try to remove the shortcut, i.e. type Alt-N+U+M and scroll to and select the symbol (maybe in the recently used), then Alt+K and select under 'Current keys' the Alt+E, then type Alt+R, or choose 'remove'. Ctrl+' followed by E gives the é, as well as Ctrl+Shift+: followed by E gives ë and guess what Ctrl+` followed by E does... Instead of E other letters work the same. Hope this helps!

Comment #95: by Tom Giordano on 12/20/2016:

Great document. I noticed one item that could be updated. *Tapping F8 repeatedly* to extend selection will, in order, select a word, *sentence*, paragraph, *section* and finally document. My suggestions for updates are emphasized by asterisks. [Reply]

Comment #92: by WHekkies on 3/22/2016:

In the section: Word 2013 Shortcuts | 14. Enter Special Fields, there is an error : ALT+SHIFT+I is called insert Citation and ALT+SHIFT+O is also wrongly called insert Citation. It should be Insert Table of Content [Reply]

Comment #62: by Limaccia on 7/4/2014:

Agree with everyone, this is wonderful! I had a devil of a time finding a list of Keyboard Shortcuts for Word Starter (I still hate this version for all their limits upon customization).
Although you don't mention "Word Starter" these appear to work for it. Many thanks!
But I'd like to see the two columns reversed (What it does, followed by the command) although obviously they would not fit together as well in your list [Reply]

Comment #36: by Shaalow on 6/18/2013:

Hi there,
Thanks for the great list. This isn't shortcut related exactly, but I'm wondering if you know a quick way to view recent folders when saving a word document. This seems to be gone from the left side of my screen which lists the folders.
I'm saving in too many different folders to be able to add to favorites and it's much more time consuming to have to go and find the folder I want each time.
Many thanks! [Reply]

Reply by Shaalow on 6/18/2013:

One more thing! After using Ctrl + P for print, in Word 2003 it would automatically select the number of pages where you would only have to hit the number you wanted and enter. Any tips other than the new long "short-cut" using the alt +++ keys?

Comment #34: by Ashutosh on 5/29/2013:

Thank you very much. its an excellent work and a very nice collection. Thanks again for your services.

Comment #33: by SANDEEP on 5/16/2013:

excellent [Reply]

Comment #32: by Mark on 5/11/2013:

How about F4 alone? This allows you to move to a new position in a document then simply repeat the last action you performed (e.g. 'insert rows above' current position in a table, bold selected text, anything almost..) Sooo handy. [Reply]

Reply by Sandy on 7/4/2013:

F4=Repeat last action - Does not work in Office 2010. I used this shortcut more than any other one in previous versions. It worked in Excel, Access, Word. I miss it!

Comment #23: by Jojo on 7/22/2012:

In a previous life (around Word 2003 and earlier) I used to be able to do multilevel lists with numbering. I know, you still can, BUT, what I don't seem to be able to do with the keyboard is find a shortcut to indent the next level of the list I am doing, and have it automatically put the correct number in.
Previously I could go
1. hard return
tab 1.1 hard return
tab tab 1.1.1 hard return, hard return
Now the paragraph goes in, but the numbering doesn't. Am I missing some quirky setting hidden deep in the program? [Reply]

Comment #22: by Michael Osborne on 6/21/2012:

There may be a mistake in the Word 2010 keyboard shortcut for superscript. I found that Ctrl Shift = works but the shortcut you posted does not i.e. Ctrl Shift [ ] Thanks for a great reference site though. [Reply]

Reply by bernd on 6/22/2012:

You are correct. Just fixed it. Thanks for pointing it out!

Comment #18: by Alice Greene on 1/30/2012:

I was looking for a Word 2010 (I HATE THAT PROGAM!!) shortcut to put in today's date, without the date changing every time you open the document. I stumbled upon your website in my Google search. I REALLY appreciate the list of shortcuts you posted. I really miss WordPerfect! In my opinion, WordPerfect is a truly superior word processing program, but Microsoft puts Word on every PC. I'm not a complete idiot. I know what I want in a document, and I don't want some stupid computer program making all my decisions for me. I think I've turned almost all of the crap off that I hate (automatic lists, etc.), but there are some things that still suck. [Reply]

Reply by Suzanne on 8/1/2013:

Alice, you are so RIGHT. Word Perfect is by far the best word processing program EVER. Very user friendly, fast and efficient. LOVE IT. After 31 years my firm is going to WORD. So disappointed. I HATE it too! Good luck. I may have to Xanax to get through this!!!! lol
