off-tipsThere are two very useful features in the ribbon versions of Word, which can make the Office user’s life a lot easier. These are the Access Key feature and the Quick Access Toolbar.

The Access Key feature is accessed by pressing the Alt key. When this is done, the ribbon lights up with a number of Key Tips – one Key Tip per feature available.

It gets better: if you right-click on a button in the ribbon then Word will show “Add to Quick Access Toolbar” as the first option in the right-click menu – if you choose this then the relevant button will be added to the Quick Access Toolbar (which starts off its life at the top left of the Office screen, but can be moved if you want it somewhere else).
