Chapter 31. Customizing Word > Adding a Keyboard Shortcut to a Menu Item

Adding a Keyboard Shortcut to a Menu Item

In Word, every built-in menu command contains a letter designated as the shortcut key. For example, you can choose Save As from the File menu by pressing Alt+F, A. You can add a shortcut key to a custom command as well.

In many cases, Word includes a shortcut key automatically when you drag the command to a menu. If that shortcut key isn't already in use on the same menu, there's little reason to change it. If it is already used, however, you'll almost certainly want to change it.
