Undoing mistakes and repeating actions
Zooming to get a better view of your work
Working with two different files at the same time
Instructing Office to correct typos automatically
Entering hard-to-type text with the AutoCorrect command
This brief chapter takes you on a whirlwind tour of shortcut commands
that can save you time and effort no matter which Office application
you’re working in. This chapter is devoted to people who want to get it done
quickly and get away from their computers. It explains the Undo and Repeat
commands, zooming in and out, and opening more than one window on the
same file. You also discover how to display windows in different ways,
correct your typos automatically, and enter hard-to-type terminology with a
simple flick of the wrist.
Undoing and Repeating Commands
If I were to choose two commands for the Hall of Fame, they would be
the Undo command and the Repeat command. One allows you to reverse
actions you regret doing, and the other repeats a previous action without
you having to choose the same commands all over again. Undo and Repeat
are explained forthwith.
Undoing a mistake
Fortunately for you, all is not lost if you make a big blunder because Office
has a marvelous little tool called the Undo command. This command
“remembers” your previous editorial and formatting changes. As long as
you catch your error in time, you can undo your mistake.
Click the Undo button on the Quick Access toolbar (or press Ctrl+Z) to undo
your most recent change. If you made your error and went on to do
something else before you caught it, open the drop-down list on the Undo button. It
lists your previous actions, as shown in Figure 3-1. Click the action you want
to undo, or if it isn’t on the list, scroll until you find the error and then click it.
