The Microsoft Word Keyboard Alphabet

I love keyboard shortcuts. I find that they massively improve my productivity when working with Microsoft applications.

Because of this I thought I would put together a fun article walking through the letters on the keyboard and the actions they perform within Microsoft Word.

Now keyboard shortcuts are not limited to just these. There are loads more including the keyboards function keys and incorporating the Alt and Shift keys into the combination too.

Download a list of the most popular keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Word.

I must try using more of them. I do use the ones for Save, Copy and Paste - none of the others.
