Create a Word Keyboard Shortcuts List

If you like to use keyboard shortcuts, you might have some of them memorized, in Word and Excel, or other programs. If your memory isn't too good, you can print a list of shortcuts and keep it near your computer as a reference.

A few months ago, I mentioned some sites where you can download lists of Excel keyboard shortcuts. It's even easier to get a list of Word keyboard shortcuts. There's a built in macro that you can run, to create the list.

Create a List of Word Keyboard Shortcuts

  1. In Word 2003, click the Tools menu, click Macro, then click Macros.
  2. In the Macros dialog box, click the dropdown arrow for 'Macros in' and select Word commands
  3. In the list of macros, click on ListCommands, then click Run.
  4. In the List Commands dialog box, click on Current menu and keyboard settings, then click OK

A new document will be created, with a table that lists all the keyboard shortcuts and menu commands.

    Debra, I don’t know how you find this stuff. Who would ever think to look for a macro that does this? Anyway, it is fascinating, even though I’m not much of a keyboard jockey.

  2. Cool, 9 pages of keyboard shortcut glory. Thanks a ton for this tip!

  3. Tim, I can’t remember when I first learned that Word had built-in macros. Word 6.0? Then I forgot about them, and was pleased to find them again.

    Bill, that should keep you busy for a while! Don’t try to memorize all of them.
