Troubleshooting

Changing the Key Combination for a Macro

I recorded a macro and told Word to run it whenever I press Shift+F5. I changed my mind after discovering that Word has a built-in command already assigned to Shift+F5. How do I change the macro so it runs when I push Shift+F6, and restore Word's built-in command to Shift+F5?

Click Tools, Customize; then press the Keyboard button at the bottom of the dialog box. In the Categories list on the left, click Macros; then, in the Macros list on the right, select the name of the macro that you recorded. In the Current Keys box at the lower left, click the unwanted keyboard shortcut (in this case, Shift+F5), and then click Remove. That removes the Shift+F5 key assignment for your recorded macro and restores the assignment to Word's default command. Click in the Press New Shortcut Key box, and press Shift+F6. Click Assign; then click Close twice. Shift+F5 will revert to the old Goback function. Shift+F6 will run your recorded macro.
