Microsoft Word Shortcut Menus
A great tip for Microsoft Word users is right-clicking to display shortcut menus.
This feature is also very helpful if you can’t find the feature you are looking for. The shortcut menus are contextual, that means that different options will be displayed depending on what you are doing.
