The Keyboard At Your Command

We've been working a lot lately on improving the Office 12 keyboard model, so
my mind is trapped in a keyboard shortcut frame of mind. I don't have anything to share
on this subject yet (we're still working on the design), and when I do I'll certainly post here.
But thinking about this so much gave me the inspiration for today's post.

Whenever I write about keyboard access in Office, people send comments along the
lines of "I wish it was easier to figure out what the keyboard shortcuts in
Office were."

There are, as you might expect, a lot of web resources on the
subject. But I recommend
the great
Office Online site, which has an
incredible stash of information to help you use Office. Click the Assistance
link on the left side to start digging in.

To save you time, I've compiled the list of guides to keyboard shortcuts for
all of the Office programs. Don't miss the "Show All" link at the top of each
page which formats the page in a way suitable for printing.

[List of Excel Keyboard Shortcuts](

The Office assistance team has also created a number of other useful
resources around using the keyboard with Office. Here are some of them:

- How to use the keyboard effectively in Outlook

[Quiz: Keyboard Basics in Office](

These are just a few of the over 100 articles on using the keyboard in
Office. You can
view the
full list here
. And don't worry, the keyboard shortcuts will continue to
work in Office 12.

Now you're ready to impress friends, family and co-workers with your
mouseless command of Office.
