Microsoft Word Keyboard Shortcuts

30 Keyboard Shortcuts for Microsoft Word

I have had several people in my Microsoft Word training classes asking if there is a good list of word shortcuts. Microsoft have produced an article but I have composed a list of the best and most useful ones that I have come across from working with word over the last 20 years. As Word has changed and developed over the years with plenty of new versions, some of these areas may be unfamiliar to you. So if you would like to find out more about using Word and getting the most from it, do have a look at attending one of our courses such as the Microsoft Word Office Users course.
