    Thank you for the list! For me, the best way to learn is to see the shrotcuts when you hover the mouse over the button. Most bottons in the ribbon will show you the the shortcut, but some do not, such as “new comment”. Is there a way to set MSWord 2007 to show you all the shortcuts until they become familar?

    Thanks for the great, organized list! I’m looking for a shortcut for “New Comment” when reviewing a document. Do you know of one?

    • CZ

      I just found out about this one. It’s Ctrl-Alt-M

  • Philip

    Thank you!!!!! I could not find the Reveal formatting in Word 2007. You helped prevent a certain stroke and trip to the hospital. Thank you again.

    Thank you for the list

    There appears to be a typo in your list.
    Show/Hide Paragraph marks and hidden text should be:
    Ctrl + * (i.e. Ctrl + Shift + 8)
