The Secret Menus in Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word
Do you want to find a quicker way to make formatting and editing changes in Microsoft Word?

Do you know there are secret menus that can help?

Here's a Cool Tip:  Context Menus (also called shortcut menu or Pop-up menu)

Rather than selecting a word and then moving your mouse to the top ribbon menu to make formatting or editing changes, you can use the context menus.

Here's how to do it.

  • Click in any word and then right-mouse click. OR
  • Highlight and select a word or words you want to format or edit.
    • Cool Tip:  You can also double click a word to highlight it.  Triple click to highlight and select the paragraph.
    • You'll see the formatting menu appear.
    • To display the pop-up menu, right-mouse click.  You can make many other edits from this menu.
    • You can also use the Shift + F10 keyboard shortcut to display this menu wherever your cursor is at.
These two menus will let you make the most common formatting and editing changes.

That's it!
