The Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) in Office 2007 programs have their own shortcut keys using the number keys.
The Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) in Office 2007 programs have their own shortcut keys using the number keys. Alt + 1 for the first icon on the QAT, Alt + 2 for the second and so on.
The shortcuts expand with each new icon you add to the QAT and the toolbar can get very long if you wish:
For a really long toolbar, the tenth icon has a shortcut Alt + 0, 9 then in DEscending order to Alt + 0 , 1 then letters Alt + 0, A etc.
These shortcuts are handy but don’t commit them to memory because they rely on the order of icons on the QAT and that might change. If you change the order of the Quick Access Toolbar or switch to another machine the shortcut might take you to a different Word command.
For features you use often, better to remember the direct keyboard shortcut that will work regardless of the QAT setup. For example, better to remember Ctrl + S which will always save a document instead of Alt + 1 which might change.
