Now you can try using keyboard shortcuts to reposition and change the appearance of text as well as to save and close your documents.

This session uses Microsoft Word and concentrates on using shortcuts that are common across all the Office programs. Remember that there are lots of program-specific shortcuts as well.

In the following exercises, you will use keyboard shortcuts to format the text of a document in a more presentable way.

About the practice session

When you click Practice in Word, a practice document will download to your computer and open in Word, and a separate window with practice instructions will appear alongside (see picture).

Note     You need to have Word 2003 installed on your computer.
