Microsoft Windows and Office Tips and Tricks

There is a nice article in Law Practice Today by Dan Pinnington called The Greatest Hidden Windows and Office Tricks for Lawyers.  I am always trying to find new ways to be more productive, so I like these tips from the article.  Many of the tips are pretty well known, but here are some of my favorites:

  • Keyboard Shortcuts – “To help you remember to use new shortcuts, try putting a Post-it on the edge of your monitor as a reminder.”
  • Alt+Tab for switching between programs
  • Cascading and tiling windows – If you right-click an empty area on the taskbar, you will be given three choices: Cascade Windows, Tile Windows Horizontally, or Tile Windows Vertically.
  • Paste Special – allows copy and paste without pasting the formatting from the source.  After you copy the desired text, “place the cursor at the point you want to add it to your document.  But instead of clicking the ‘Paste’ icon, click on ‘Edit’, then ‘Paste Special’, and then select the ‘Unformatted’ option. The text will adopt the format of the receiving document and any formatting from the source document will be lost.”
