Control+ABC Shortcuts

Many of the MS-Word shortcuts are used by other computer programs too. For most of them, just hold down the Control key and press a letter key at the same time, then release both keys.  See the results of using the A, B and C letter keys below.

Control+a   All – select All the text in the current file
Control+b   Bold – make the next or selected text bold
Control+c   Copy – the highlighted text to Paste it elsewhere
