Customizing Keyboard Shortcuts in Word
4. In the Categories list, choose the category with the command to which
you want to assign the keyboard shortcut.
At the bottom of the list are the Macros, Fonts, Building Blocks, Styles,
and Common Symbols categories.
5. Choose the command name, macro, font, building block, style, or
symbol name in the Commands list.
6. In the Press New Shortcut Key box, type the keyboard shortcut.
Press the actual keys. For example, if the shortcut is Ctrl+8, press the
Ctrl key and the 8 key — don’t type out +8.
If you try to assign a shortcut that has already been assigned, the words
“Currently assigned to” and a command name appear below the Current
Keys box. You can override the preassigned keyboard assignment by
entering a keyboard assignment of your own.
7. If you want the keyboard shortcut changes you make to apply to the
document you’re working on, not to all documents created with the
template you’re working with, open the Save Changes In drop-down
list and choose your document’s name.
8. Click the Assign button.
9. When you finish assigning keyboard shortcuts, close the Customize
Keyboard dialog box.
To delete a keyboard shortcut, display it in the Current Keys box, select it,
and click the Remove button.
You can always get the old keyboard shortcuts back by clicking the Reset All
button in the Customize Keyboard dialog box.
