Navigating the Ribbon (Menu System)
Using access keys, you can quickly use a command by pressing a few keys, regardless of where you are in the program. This may not work in earlier versions of Office, but every command in Word 2010, for example, can be accessed with an access key. You can get to most commands by using two to five keystrokes. Here's how to get started:
- Press ALT. The KeyTips are displayed over each feature that is available in the current view.
- Press the letter shown in the KeyTip over the feature that you want to use.
- Depending on which letter you press, you may be shown additional KeyTips.
- Continue pressing letters until you press the letter of the command or control that you want to use. In some cases, you must first press the letter of the group that contains the command.
So now you are just as fast and efficient in all Office programs as you are in Outlook. If you have additional questions on making the most of Office or other systems in your network, eNet Systems is here to help. Simply give us a call at
