    Welcome to our October Newsletter

    Thank you to all our loyal readers.    I have really appreciated your feedback on these newsletters, and hope that I can continue to give you information that is helpful.  Our exciting news is that MR LCD turns 5 in November.  While we actually started the business in July 2003, November 2003 was when Michael left full time employment to put all his time into MR LCD.  So to all our customers, and especially the ones who have been with us from the very beginning, we say thank you for the support that you have given us over the past 5 years, and we look forward to looking after you for many years to come!!

    Keyboard Shortcuts

    So you have to sit down and write a letter, but keep avoiding it because you know that the process is going to take some time, especially trying to find the different menu options that you need as you work.  The good news is that there are quite a few simple keyboard shortcuts that will help you get through the task quickly.  A lot of them use the control key (Ctrl) in conjunction with another letter key.  These both need to be pressed at the same time.

    Here is a list of a few simple shortcuts for Microsoft Word:

    • Ctrl S = Save. If you have not yet saved the document, it will open the save as window.  If you have already named the document in save as, it will just save the document.  This is perfect for making sure that you don’t lose any information if something goes wron, such as a power out.  Try to remember Ctrl S every time you hit enter!!
    • Ctrl P = Print. This will open the print window so you can choose the options to print.  Of course, if you just want to use the default settings, hit enter straight away
    • Ctrl N = New. This will open a new, blank document
    • Ctrl O = Open. This will open the window to select which existing file you want to open
    • Ctrl B = Bold.  This will “turn on or off” bold.  Anything you type after pressing Ctrl B will be in bold, until you press Ctrl B again to stop.  You can also highlight a section and press Ctrl B, and the highlighted section will be made bold.
    • Ctrl I = Italics.  Same as Bold, but will put the text in italics.
    • Ctrl U = Underline. Same as Bold and Italics, but will underline the text.
    • Ctrl C = Copy. Highlight a section and this will copy the text
    • Ctrl X = Cut.  Highlight section and this will cut or remove the text
    • Ctrl V  =Paste. This will insert at the cursor any copied or cut text
    • Ctrl W  =Close. This will close the document.  If you have not saved the document, you will be prompted to do so.

    Hope fully these few tips will help you spend less time next time you have to create a Word Document!
