Are you in a rush to type that report? To format a proposal quickly for this afternoon’s meeting? These keyboard shortcuts that will change the way you work.
Formatting on Word: Ctrl+U, Ctrl+B, Ctrl+I
This one’s for you Office newbies. It’s easy to underline, bold, and italicize without the mouse all the way up your document, just highlight and press Ctrl+U (underlining), Ctrl+B (bolding), or Ctrl+I (italicizing).
Permanent delete: Shift+Delete
If you want to delete a file—and you don’t want to deal with it later in the Recycle Bin—this is the trick for you and your file management. Just be absolutely sure that this is a file you won’t want back!
Close a window: Alt+F4
This shortcut is a quick way to close a window in any program if your trackpad is broken. Alt+Spacebar+C (which requires less stretching, but more keys) and Ctrl+W do the same function. Any of the ways will allow you to close a window without using your mouse to hit the X in the upper-right corner.
Undo and Redo: Ctrl+Z, Ctrl+Y
Undo an action by hitting Ctrl+Z; if you change your mind, Ctrl+Y will redo the undo. Simple!
Highlighting made easy: Shift + Arrow Keys
Holding shift and pressing one of the arrow keys will highlight text in Word (or a group of Excel cells) without the mouse, selecting in the direction the arrow points.
With these tricks, you’ll be able to work more efficiently and effectively, without relying on your mouse or trackpad.
