Mad Monday Microsoft Shortcuts
Shortcuts are all about minimising the amount of clicks required when working on our computers by not taking our hands of the keyboard to locate and grab the mouse to activate a command making our efforts more efficient.
We are aware that they exist, we all know and use a few and know how great they can be but no one knows them all or even a vast range because unless they are used regularly of course we will forget them.
Every Monday I will post a short cut with an explanation on Why and How to use it. Print it out and stick it up on your wall and try it for a few days. If you are still using it on Friday you can be guaranteed that you need this particular shortcut.
Like our Facebook Page and/or follow our Blog and receive the Mad Monday Posts every week, you never know, you might find a shortcut or two that you did not know about and that is of use to you.
Ctrl C & Ctrl V
2 in one week, I know it is supposed to be One but there is no point learning one without the other, this shortcut works in ALL Microsoft Office Suite programs, Word, Excel Outlook etc
Copy & Paste can be achieved by both Right Clicking on your mouse and in the FONT section in the Home Tab but that means that you will have to take your hands off the keyboard and grab the mouse to complete this function.
HOW – High light the words you want to copy either by mouse or with the arrow keys,(hold down Shift and arrows will highlight) Then Ctrl C to Copy, arrow or Enter tot eh location you want to paste to and Ctrl V.
