It's time to make some of your own keyboard shortcuts and save your customizations in a particular template or document, as well as for the whole program.

This practice session will show you how to do things and then will give you instructions on how to return to the initial settings. The key combinations in this practice session will not overwrite any of the default Word keyboard shortcuts.

Caution     If you have already set up personalized keyboard shortcuts, double check that the key combinations in this practice session will not overwrite them. The key combinations that are used are CTRL+7 and CTRL+8.

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.

Tips

  • 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.
