Keyboard Shortcuts

In PowerPoint 2010, keyboard shortcuts that begin with the CTRL key, such as CTRL+F to search for something and CTRL+B to bold text, remain the same as in previous versions of PowerPoint.

However, shortcuts that in previous PowerPoint versions involved pressing ALT have changed; these are now called KeyTips. To display KeyTips in your presentation:

  1. Press ALT. Doing this makes KeyTips appear for all of the tabs on the Ribbon.
  2. Now press the corresponding key to open the tab or Quick Access Toolbar you want to use.
  3. Press the letter of the command you wish to execute.

For example to add a comment in your presentation, you would press ALT, and then R to display the Review tab, and then C to insert your comment.
