As you already know, Word 2010 allows you to use keyboard combination shortcuts for many things We call these shortcuts. Personally, I call them time savers! But most especially they are time savers when they cause a macro to run!
Once you have created a macro, Word will allow you to assign a specific key combination to it that will cause it to run. If you would like to save time and learn how to do this, follow the steps below:
- Click the File tab on your Ribbon and then Options to open Word Options.
- Click Customize Ribbon.
- Click the Customize button at the bottom of the dialog box to display the Customize Keyboard dialog box.
- In Categories, select Macros.
- In the Macros list, select the macro to which you would like to add a shortcut key.
- Click once in the Press New Shortcut Key box.
- Click a keyboard shortcut you would like to use to run your macro.
If that keyboard combination is already in use, you will know because it will show you that it is assigned to something else.
- Click Assign.
- Click Close.
It’s that simple!
