Creating a keyboard shortcut
Explanation
Many of Word’s most commonly used commands have keyboard shortcuts. For
example, to italicize selected text, you can press Ctrl+I rather than click the Italics
button on the Home tab. However, many commands do not have an associated keyboard
shortcut. You can assign a keyboard shortcut to any command in Word.
To add a keyboard shortcut:
1
Open the Word Options dialog box and select Customize Ribbon.
2
Next to Keyboard shortcuts, click Customize to open the Customize Keyboard
dialog box, shown in Exhibit 5-4.
3
In the Categories list, select a category.
4
In the Commands list, select the command to which you want to assign a
shortcut key.
5
Place the insertion point in the “Press new shortcut key box” and press the
shortcut keys you want to assign. Under the Current keys box, the “Currently
assigned to” text indicates whether the shortcut is already in use.
6
Click Assign to assign the shortcut, which then appears in the Current keys list.
7
Click Close to close the Customize Keyboard dialog box.
8
Click OK to close the Word Options dialog box.
