Some smart MS Word 2007 shortcuts

For those who have become used to using MS-Office on Windows 97, 2000 or XP, using Office in Windows Vista might be some kind of a surprise! So, thought of coming up with a few shortcuts which one would use extensively in MS-Word 2007.

In the posts to follow, we will come up with a series of shortcuts on Powerpoint, Word and Excel which would be exhaustive! (and you could download the same!)

The MS-Word 2007 has the following appearance where there are different tabs such as Home, Insert, Page layout, Reference, Mailing, Review and View. Each of them is a ‘ribbon’ by itself and can be separated from the main bar (like a toggle view).
