Word Tip – Keyboard Shortcut to Delete a Word
Even though a month hasn’t passed, I’m going to add in a couple of extra tips, this one in Word, just so you have a few different tips to get started with.
- As you type, you’ll generally find that you make typing errors (if you’re anything like me, you’ll do this a lot!).
- It’s really frustrating, and slow, to have to backspace each and every letter, to fix the error.
- That’s why I’m giving you this lovely little keyboard tip that will give you a quick way to delete a word, as you are typing.
- It’s quick and most importantly, it will be one you use constantly and one that you’ll find does make a difference to you, every day.
You can view the video or follow the (brief) step-by-step shown underneath.
Enjoy and remember: Keep it Simple!
Today we’re looking at Word and we’re going to see how we can quickly delete a word, as we type, using a keyboard shortcut.
- I’ll move onto a new line to type – so I’ll press the Enter key.
- I’ll type: ‘Word – is – a – great’
- Now – I want to delete the ‘great’ and use a different word instead.
- So rather than backspacing each individual letter – just hold down the CTRL key on the keyboard – and press the Backspace key once – then continue typing!
Thank you, I hope you enjoyed that and I’ll be back with another useful tip – next month!
