COMMON KEYBOARD COMMANDS

for most word processing programs

 

When you are in a program that allows you to type a letter or similar document you are using a WORD PROCESSOR. At some point in the experience you`ll find that you may want to edit your document after you have entered some text. When most people first start using a word processor they have a tendency to edit while they type. For example, they will punch out a bunch of text and suddenly realize they`ve made a mistake four words back and begin BACKSPACING to fix it. Erasing everything they’ve already typed correctly.

 

Well, those days are over for you my friend. The following cheat sheet will help you edit a document AFTER all of the tedious typing is finished. Why not just fly through that bad-boy, mistakes be damned, because you can go back and edit later.

The great thing about this tutorial is,

 

you don’t have to remember all these tips

just SAVE THE FILE IN YOUR DOCUMENTS folder

and go back to it when you need it.

 

LETS GET STARTED

ONE WHOLE WORD at a time.

 

Press the END key to go to the end of a sentence

NOTE: Be careful using these next ones if you have a long document

because it could be a pain in the butt returning to where you were before you hit the end key.

(Hold) Ctrl key then press the HOME key to go to the beginning of the document
