Printing Shortcut Key Assignments from a Macro

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated March 14, 2015)

Word allows you to assign your own shortcut keys to apply styles, initiate macros, or invoke some Word command. Over time, the number of shortcut key assignments you set up can get quite lengthy. Thus, Word allows you to print a list of the shortcut keys associated with a document by using the Print What drop-down list in the Print dialog box.

If you are developing macros, you may have a need to offer the same functionality from within the macro itself. If you want your macro to print a list of the shortcut key assignments, you can use the PrintOut method, as shown here:

ActiveDocument.PrintOut Item:=wdPrintKeyAssignments
