Printing Shortcut Key Assignments

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated September 2, 2017)


As you already know, Word allows you to assign your own shortcut keys to invoke styles or initiate macros. At some point you may want to print out a list of the assignments you have made. This is handy to keep near the computer as a quick-reference guide. To print such a list, follow these steps:

  1. Select Print from the File menu. Word displays the Print dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Print dialog box.

  3. Using the Print What drop-down list, select Key Assignments.
  4. Click your mouse on OK.
