Keyboard Shortcuts

In Word 2010 and 2013, keyboard shortcuts that begin with the CTRL key, such as CTRL+C to copy and CTRL+V to paste, remain the same as in previous versions of Word.

However, shortcuts that in previous Word versions involved pressing ALT have changed; these are now called KeyTips.

To display KeyTips in your document:

  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 check the spelling of your document, you would press ALT, and then R to display the Review tab, and then S to check spelling and grammar.
