So you are a hotshot who doesn’t need to use a mouse! Fair enough, viagra 40mg power users tend to find they can do tasks quicker by using shortcut keys. Shortcut keys are combinations of keystrokes on your keyboard that can make the program do a certain task.

The new Ribbon UI in Word 2007, Excel 2007, and PowerPoint 2007 is easier to use with a mouse, but if you want to use your keyboard shortcuts, there is a quick, easy, and *visual* way to find out what you need to press.

**All you need to do, is hit the “Alt” key**. Simple as that. By pressing the “Alt” button in Word 2007, the keyboard shortcuts appear on top of all the different sections of the Ribbon.

For example, (looking at the screenshot), to open the file menu, all I need to do is hit “ALT+F”. If I want to save my file, which happens to be one of the Quick Access Toolbar buttons, I could hit “Alt+1”. To change to the Insert Tab in the Word 2007 ribbon, I could hit “Alt+N”

As soon as you go to another tab in the ribbon, if you hit “Alt” again, you can see all the shortcuts for each piece of functionality on that tab.

So there you have it – all you need to do is remember “Alt” is your shortcut to keyboard shortcuts in Word 2007! (and Excel 2007, PowerPoint 2007 etc etc).

you might have a few challenges finding some of the features you use regularly. One of those great features is Undo! (I think Undo is the feature I use the most!)

To undo in Word 2010, you can either do it using your mouse, or using some shortcut keys.

**To undo using your mouse in Word 2010:**

- Look towards the top left hand corner of your Word 2010 window. Just above the office button you will see a number of small icons along the top of the screen (by the way – that is called the “Quick Access Toolbar”). Click on the one that looks like an arrow that points backwards – that is the undo button.
- If you want to undo more than one
~~mistake~~action – click on the little down arrow beside that button, and it will give you a list of actions you can undo!

**To undo using shortcut keys in Word 2010:**

- Simply hold down the “CTRL” key, and press “z” (CTRL+Z)
- To undo more than once, just keep pressing CTRL+Z

So there you have it – the easy way to get rid of your mistakes in Word 2010! 🙂
