  1. In Microsoft Word when you type a signature line and press enter the Microsoft application completes a border line which often proves difficult to remove. This happens because the app “thinks” this is what you want and completes a second action on your behalf.
    The solution: Do one undo action immediately and then continue with your document.
  2.  In Microsoft Word when you type in small letters cc for courtesy copy at the beginning of a new line, pressing the enter key changes the first small letter c to a capital letter C. This is incorrect and should be cc (two small letter c’s). This happens because the app setting is to Capitalize first letter of a sentence.
    The solution: Do one undo action immediately and then continue with your document.
  3. Dragging across an entire paragraph to select is great, however there is a tendency to not only select the paragraph but the selection drags way past. A time waster.
    Solution: Position your cursor anywhere in the paragraph text then make three rapid clicks.
  4. You can move the cursor to the location where it was when you last saved the document.
    Solution: On the keyboard press and hold the shift key and tap the combination F5 key at the top of the keyboard above the numbers/symbols – Shift + F5.
  5. You can quickly increase or decrease the text size using the keyboard. This is a time saver instead of stopping to use the mouse.
    Solution: To increase the text size select the text, press the Ctrl + Shift + > combination, to decrease the text size select the text press the Ctrl + Shift + < combination.
  6. Type these three everyday Symbols in MS Word
    Solution: For each of the following type an open round bracket R close round bracket, then press enter. The same applies except change the alpha character
