Re: Just switched to WORD 2013, any more hot keys suggestions?

Do you mean a document list, containing all your Word documents? There was an old DOS command, a variation of the DIR" command but I haven't used it in years. I think it was dir > filename.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Peter, here are some I have in a document file. I still hope we can find out how to get a document directory from a word document.
In Microsoft Word, for count, like Word Count, line count, etc, hit Alt T, W, then arrow up for information.
For font, hit Alt H, f, N
For Mailing, Alt M, E for envelopes and Alt M L for labeling.
For margins, hit Alt P, M, A.
For tabs, Alt O, T.
For word definitions: Shift F7, then F6. It will tell you to put in your word. Then tab to Thesarus English US. Enter, tab until you start getting the definitions. This one is a little tricky and requires maneuvering, but is worth it to find out what stuff means.
Here's what Trudy sent on key strokes:

If you do know them, but have friends who don't, please pass them on.Or, if you didn't know them yourself and have friends who don't know them, pass them on to those friends too.

I'm making headwaywith WORD 2013.
Your suggestion to get to save-as by using the old:
alt+F then a
only gets me to the save-as tab. Inow know that I have to select a button for the folder and that brings up the edit box.
The F12 gets me directly into the edit box where I can type thepath/fileName.
I still don't know how to open a file from inside WORD. The ctrl+o gets me the open tab. Only recent documents are shown.
I need an edit box to type the path/file so I can open a text file from within WORD.
Existing WORD files can be opened by selecting them from the directory tree.
The large WORD hot keys file is a problem, maybe the "protected view".
I used F12 to save it as a RTF and text file. It will take time to go through it.
