Method 2: Copy Paste Bold Italics and Common Tasks
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you some hotkey commands related to some of the most common tasks found in Microsoft Word 2010.
- 4The next hotkey is to activate the underline setting.This can be done in two ways. You can highlight the text by double-clicking on it and then pressing Ctrl + U simultaneously. This will underline the text. To deactivate and remove the underline press Ctrl + U once more. If you want to underline while you write, again, press Ctrl + U, continue writing and then when you have finished the underlined section, press Ctrl + U again to deactivate.
- 7The next function is to copy selected text or object.To do this, we highlight an area of text by clicking and moving the cursor around the area you wish to highlight. I can edit the whole passage, or only one word as I need. I'm going to highlight this one line. To copy the text press Ctrl + C. Now if I move my cursor to the next line, I can paste using Ctrl + V. As you can see, I've replicated the line above by copying and pasting.

Method 4: Find and Replace
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video I'm going to show you a few hotkey commands related to finding, replacing and browsing through text.
- 1First command is to open the navigational task panel.To do this we are going to press CTRL and F. CTRL F will open up the navigational panel. If you have a large piece of text and essay or a large body of work, this is a very helpful tool enabling you to find segments, words or areas very quickly. It allows you to highlight them all.
- 2For example I have type in "road" here.There are 26 matches in this piece of work. Here, we see all the sections where "road" is referenced: "the magic of the bicycle", "the freedom", "the side roads", "the direct connection and intersection with". If I scroll down I can see all the areas and segments where "road" is referenced.
- 12If you need to replace something - any text, or if you need to replace specific formatting or special items, you are going to press CTRL H.CTRL and H will ask me what word I would like (to search for) and what I would like to replace it with. This is very useful with names if you have misspelled someone's name - or location.
- 14Let's replace all.It's asking me again if I would like to restart from the beginning to continue the search. Always click "Yes" to make sure that you have not only replace the words from one point of the article to the end but you have gone full circle and also replaced the words at the beginning of the passage.
- 16Next, if we want to search a document, or an article, or any large body of work, search it very quickly for pages, bookmarks, footnotes, tables, comments, graphics or anything else we need to find, we can press CTRL and G.Here we can see it has reopened this find and replace box, the box we have looked up earlier, which is here - "Replace", "Find" and "Go To" section. You can click on the tabs at the top.
- 17We wanted to search for page number as it says here, "Enter and - to move relative to the current location.Example: 4 will move forward four items." If we wanted to go ten pages further, then we would put (Shift and sign), 10 and click "Go To" and you can see we are going straight ten pages further on. Close this section.
- 18If we wanted to switch between the last four places edited - if you want to move between the last four areas that you've edited, we can press ALT, CTRL and Z.Here, we are moving within the last four places edited allowing you very quick movement between sections rather than you having to identify, search and remember exactly where in the article you have previously been.
- 19I recommend learning these hotkeys and utilizing them as much as possible.If you are writing essays or you have work that involves Microsoft Word, this will be very beneficial for you. You've been watching VisiHow and goodbye!Advertisement
