Discussion: Advanced Shortcuts

We have previously covered some commonly known shortcuts that speed up a lot of basic functions, such as copying and pasting and doing some basic formatting. Watch the video below to see a sample of other shortcuts that are available, then answer the questions below. While the video shows an older version of Word (Microsoft Word 2016), the same shortcuts work in other versions of Word, including 2019 and 365.

You can also view a transcript for the video “Practical Word 2016 Shortcuts #2” here (opens in new window).
