Common Keyboard Shortcuts for Word

Guest Author - Chris Curtis

Common Keyboard Shortcuts for Word
If you become practiced at using keyboard shortcuts, you will find that your proficiency in Word will improve and your work will be accomplished more quickly. These keyboard techniques are called shortcuts because they take less time to execute a command then using the mouse to click on an icon or selecting a menu command. One way to make using shortcuts a habit is to start by selecting one or two commands that you use frequently and instead of reaching for the mouse, use the short cut instead. Once those have become a habit, select a couple more.
