One can download templates to start a document, write references and cross-references, headings, highlights, fonts, etc. This is a quick tutorial on How to Remove Page Number From the Cover Page in MS Word.

Before we get back to the topic, I want to present you with a few very cool MS word hacks. These hacks will save you a ton of time while editing and proofreading your documents on MS Word.

HACK 01: Keyboard shortcuts

If you remember these 3-4 keyboard shortcuts, I bet you can speed up your writing, editing, and proofreading.

  1. CTRL + SHIFT + > = Increase font size
  2. CTRL + SHIFT + < = Descrease font size
  3. ASTERISK + SPACEBAR = Quick bulleted list
  4.  * + CTRL = Show and Hide mark
  5. CTRL + C = Copy
  6. CTRL + V = Paste

HACK 02: Find and Replace

Find and Replace as the name suggests you can simply find phrases or letters from the whole document and replace the letters with what you want. E.g the other day I wrote api 40 times in a document, so to capitalize it I inserted api in the find and replaced it with API.

HACK 03: Show or Hide Mark

This is the best formatting hack ever. Many times when editing on MS Word, the formatting gets difficult, for example a page break, might cause the document to have a lot of spaces. So to see what causes the format to distort you can use this mark.
