If you are using control + S to save like you’ve got a twitch (and what MS user hasn’t learned to save obsessively), you already know that shortcuts will save you a lot of time over using menus. There are some surprising shortcuts that will save you time. Here are some lesser-known keyboard shortcuts to help speed up your productivity.
|Go to the last edit point||shift + F5||shift + F5|
|Switch between the last 4 places edited||alt + ctrl + Z||cmd + opt + Z|
|Select word, sentence, paragraph or cell, all
(repeat to toggle through selections, esc to exit)
|Insert a comment||alt + R, C||cmd + opt + A|
|Turn tracked changes on and off (toggle)||ctrl + shift + E||cmd + shift + A|
|Paste and match formatting||cmd + opt + shift + V|
|Display the shortcut menu for a selected item||shift + F10|
* Press the fn as well, if the function keys are assigned to actions such as volume and screen brightness. Cmd is the command key, which is sometimes labelled with an apple or that little circle-cornered square that won’t reproduce online.
