We've been working a lot lately on improving the Office 12 keyboard model, so my mind is trapped in a keyboard shortcut frame of mind. I don't have anything to share on this subject yet (we're still working on the design), and when I do I'll certainly post here. But thinking about this so much gave me the inspiration for today's post.

Whenever I write about keyboard access in Office, people send comments along the lines of "I wish it was easier to figure out what the keyboard shortcuts in Office were."

There are, as you might expect, a lot of web resources on the subject. But I recommend the great Office Online site, which has an incredible stash of information to help you use Office. Click the Assistance link on the left side to start digging in.

To save you time, I've compiled the list of guides to keyboard shortcuts for all of the Office programs. Don't miss the "Show All" link at the top of each page which formats the page in a way suitable for printing.

The Office assistance team has also created a number of other useful resources around using the keyboard with Office. Here are some of them:

These are just a few of the over 100 articles on using the keyboard in Office. You can view the full list here. And don't worry, the keyboard shortcuts will continue to work in Office 12.

Now you're ready to impress friends, family and co-workers with your mouseless command of Office.
