Microsoft® Office Ribbon to rub on Shortcuts
Right from childhood we seek shortcuts to success and the behavioral traits still seem to rein our lives. We still run after shortcuts to get our work done in half the time. For example, during aptitude tests, you need to be aware of the quick mathematical shortcuts to finish them within the stipulated time. However, if you don’t utilize the shortcuts in necessary steps of a mathematical problem, you may run short of time and you will be unable to complete the test. Shortcuts often help us to be efficient and save time. Microsoft Office also includes a range of shortcuts that can help you save considerable amount of time and enhance your productivity.
Let us explore the KeyTips features that appear in all the programs in the Microsoft Office 2010 and Microsoft Office 2007 suites. These let you access the Ribbon by just tapping the keys of the keyboard, without any movement of the mouse.
For Microsoft Office programs, like Microsoft Word or Microsoft PowerPoint:
- Tap the ‘Alt’ key on the keyboard.
- Small white boxes appear on the screen containing the KeyTips features, marked in numerics and alphabets. These boxes appear on or next to the menus and icons of the program.
- If you want to open one of the icons or menus without accessing the mouse, first press on the letter or numeric of the KeyTips, next to the command that you want to use. You can use KeyTips shortcut to introduce a Picture or to View Ruler.
- As the command specifies, an array of KeyTips may appear on the screen in order to channelize you into the menus of the program. The Arrow keys of the keyboard can be used to move up and down within the opened text menus to choose the required KeyTip.
Microsoft Office KeyTips for Ribbon shortcuts pave the way for extensive use of the keyboard. So, what are you waiting for? Land into the world of shortcuts and make your computing experience easier, quicker, and more effective.
