Navigate Word 2007 or 2010 with the Keyboard

by Lynne on June 17th, 2011

Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010 have caused quite a few problems to those who use keyboard shortcuts, as the menu bar has been replaced with a ‘Ribbon’, and no longer contains the visible shortcut within the File Name (as in Office 2000, 2003 and XP)

Open Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010

Press Alt

You will see that each tab on the Ribbon will show a letter in a square

If you want to move to one of the other Ribbons, type the letter showing on the tab, eg N to go the Insert Ribbon

You will also see the shortcuts appearing on all of the various features on the ribbon

To access any of these, just press the letter showing and you will be taken to that object
