If you want to seem really wizardly with Word then try turning on the function key display.

If you want to seem really wizardly with Word then try turning on the function key display. This is an extra bar at the bottom of the Word window.

It shows all the available Function Key options available at that time – they change depending on what you are doing at that moment. Both the Fn key name and the action are displayed.

You can mouse click on a button to get that action or faster, press the Fn button on your keyboard.

This feature is in Office 2003 and perhaps some earlier versions but it’s somewhat hiding. Go to Tools | Customize | Toolbars and scroll down the list to look for Function Key Display – if it is there then check the box next to it to make it appear. Note: this toolbar doesn’t appear in the list you see when right-clicking on any empty part of the word toolbar – even when the Function Key Display is being used it doesn’t appear!
