Most people know the common keyboard shortcuts like CTRL-O to open a document, CTRL-P to print, or CTRL-S to save. These are more or less universal – in other words, they work in most Windows applications. Here are some additional common keyboard shortcuts that will work in Word and many others:
Most people know the F1 key will summon help. But do you know what these function keys do?
F2 allows you move text or graphics
F4 repeats the last task
F5 opens the Go To dialog box, with tabs for Find and Replace
F7 starts the spell checker
F12 chooses Save As
Of course almost any ribbon item can be invoked via the keyboard. Press the Alt key, and letters will appear below each ribbon tab. Press the N key, for example, for the Insert ribbon. Once displayed, each icon on the ribbon also displays a letter which, when pressed, will choose that option in the same way a mouse click would.
