Office 2008 Keyboard Shortcuts

You can quickly perform tasks by using keyboard shortcuts—one or more keys that you press on the keyboard to complete a task. For example, pressing Command+P opens the Print dialog box.

Note

Keyboard shortcut descriptions refer to the U.S. keyboard layout. Keys on other keyboard layouts might not correspond to the keys on a U.S. keyboard. Keyboard shortcuts for laptop computers might also differ.
