Some folks just hate to take their hands off their keyboard! It’s true! They just do not like moving over to grab their mouse to make something happen on their screen. They find it a waste of time.
If you are one of those folks, this tip is for you!
A lot of the dialog boxes in Word utilize the Tab system. Depending on what dialog box you are using, they can look different. The standard method is tabs along the top of the box. There are also some that use side tabs.
If you would like examples to see what I am talking about, take a look at the Page Setup Dialog box. There you will see tabs across the top. Now, take a gander at the Word Options dialog box. There you will see the tabs along the left-hand side of the dialog box.
It really does not matter at all where the tabs are located, because they are basically navigated in the same manner.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- To move forward through the available tabs, simply press Ctrl+Tab. To move backwards, use Shift+Ctrl+Tab.
That’s really all there is to it!
