Toggling Print Preview

If you are the type of person that likes to keep your fingers on the keyboard as much as possible, you will be interested in this tip. Normally, if you want to print preview your document, you need to use the mouse to select the Print Preview tool, or use the Alt process to select the Print Preview option from the File menu.

A quicker way to toggle print preview is to simply press Alt+Ctrl+I. Press it once, and Print Preview appears. Press it again, and Print Preview disappears.

It is interesting to note that many people overlook this shortcut since it is not listed on Word's menus. Normally, Word shows available keyboard shortcuts to the right of a menu choice in the menu. For instance, if you look to the right of the Print option in the File menu, you can see that Ctrl+P allows you to print. Word doesn't list the Print Preview shortcut on the menus, however.
