Lesson 27. Customizing the Way Word Works > Customizing the Keyboard

Customizing the Keyboard

When you customize the keyboard, you assign shortcut keys to specified commands. A shortcut key is a key or key combination that you can press to carry out the command, just as if you had selected the command from a menu or a toolbar. You can assign regular Word commands to shortcut keys, and you can also assign styles, macros, fonts, and AutoText entries.

Word comes with many commands already assigned to shortcut keys. You can change or delete these assignments, but use caution. Some shortcut keys are standardized across different Windows programs, such as Ctrl+O for Open, Ctrl+Z for Undo, and Ctrl+F for Find. If you change these assignments, you run the risk of making your copy of Word too different from other Windows programs.
