Practice in Word
Problems with the practice?
HelpTry our troubleshooting tips

All of the practice sessions in this course assume that you are not using a mouse. If you normally are a mouse user, try moving your mouse out of reach during the practices.

This practice session is about using keyboard shortcuts to find and view the full list of keyboard shortcuts in Help and, if you wish to, print it. This step–by–step procedure is helpful for people who can only use the keyboard. If you would prefer to get straight to learning about keyboard shortcuts in action, please move straight onto the next lesson.

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.


  • If the practice instructions aren't visible, or disappear when you click in Word, click the Word Help taskbar button and then click the Auto Tile button on the upper-left corner of the instructions.
  • If the practice instructions cover up Word, click the Auto Tile button on the upper-left corner of the instructions.

Before you begin

Make sure to close Word if it is already running.

Start the practice

Click the Practice in Word button now.
