Keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Word. By Sandra Rosenzweig

By Sandra Rosenzweig
      Here are some Microsoft Word keyboard shortcuts. Want to return to where you left off in a document yesterday? Press Shift-F5 to move the cursor to the last place you were. To move from one open window to the next, press Alt-Tab. To go back the other way, press Shift-Alt-Tab. To move among all open windows within a single program, press Ctrl-F6. To highlight a whole sentence in Word, hold down the Ctrl key and click your mouse cursor anywhere in the sentence. To select several discontiguous lines, words, sentences, or paragraphs, select each candidate with your cursor while pressing the Ctrl key. (This also works for email messages in Outlook or files listed in File Explorer.) Note: Many of these tricks won't work with Office 2007.
