Microsoft Office Shortcuts you should know for Windows Environment

My very first Job when I graduated College in 2002, was working for an outplacement firm. This firm helped clients who were laid off gather the tools to re-enter the workforce. So I spent a very large portion of my day editing and formatting resumes. I had to learn a few keyboard shortcuts. In the workplace you will find these shortcuts helpful if you find yourself using MS Word often.

CTRL+U = Underline your text (This shortcut can be used prior to typing the text or once you have typed the text you can highlight and use the shortcut)

CTRL+B = Bold your text (This shortcut can be used prior to typing the text or once you have typed the text you can highlight and use the shortcut)

CTRL+I = Italicize your text (This shortcut can be used prior to typing the text or once you have typed the text you can highlight and use the shortcut)

CTRL + C = Copy your text

CTRL+V = Paste your previously COPIED text

CTRL + A = Select All text

SHIFT+F3 = Turns your selected text into all CAPS

ATL + PrntScr = Take a screenshot of an image, page etc. The purpose of this shortcut is if you want to send someone a snapshot in another program, you have the ability to do so. After you take the snapshot you can do a CTRL + V to copy and paste)
