Before you start learning how to use MS-WORD package, firstly! you need to know and learn MS-WORD shortcut keys, these keys lets you perform a task easily and command some functions on word environment instead of using the mouse.
Which MS Word shortcut keys do you use? Well, most people use only a handful shortcut combinations like Control+C, Control+V, Control+A, Control +B etc. Have ever thought why do you use these keys? It is because shortcut keys work faster than doing the same thing with mouse. When you are typing in MS Word, pressing shortcuts is easier because you don’t have to leave your keyboard and get hold of mouse.
We live in a fast-paced society and often enough it seems like there is not enough time in the day to accomplish what needs to be done. If there are shortcuts we can implement that
will save us valuable time then we will give them a try. We have nothing to lose if we do, Who knows? They just might work.
Whether you are technologically savvy or not you can still implement shortcuts when using software applications such as Microsoft Word. The shortcuts are easy to use and remember. For those people that tend to forget things, keeping a print out of the shortcuts is not a bad idea.
Many of us don’t know how to perform a task quickly, if not most modern desktop programs implement keyboard shortcuts, which allow users to perform tasks quickly, eliminating the need to use a mouse still some people don’t know those shortcuts so we are bringing you those keys below.
