Function Toolbar

F what?



In Word 2007+, you can see the shortcut keys by pressing the ALT key.

Word (2002-2003) has a rarely seen "toolbar" that lets you use your mouse to perform function key actions. In addition, when you press Shift you'll see what the Shift + function key combinations do, press Ctrl and you'll see those shortcuts, and so on.

The toolbar is automatically placed at the bottom of the screen (underneath the document area; right above the status bar); like any toolbar, you can drag it and dock to it any side of the screen, or let it float. To display the Function Key Display toolbar:

  1. Go to Tools>Customize.
  2. Select the Toolbars tab, then check Function Key Display
  3. Click the Close button.
Press the Ctrl, Alt, or Shift keys to see the toolbar buttons (shortcut hints) change. Click on the buttons and the appropriate action will be performed.
