Most of the shortcuts keys youre familiar with from earlier versions of Word still work in Word 2007. But Word 2007 provides a new system for shortcuts.
You can access the available shortcut keys by pressing and holding the ALT key. Gray boxes containing letters or numbers will appear on the screen beside the menus and Quick Access toolbar buttons. You can release the ALT key.
Next, press the key corresponding to a command or menu. For example, to access commands on the Office menu, press F.
When the menu opens, gray boxes with letters or numbers will appear next to commands. Press the corresponding key to execute a command or access a sub-menu.
Once youve memorized the keys for a particular command, you can press the keys in rapid sequence.
