Insert the Date and Time into Microsoft Word 2010
Edited by Thor, Jen M, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you how to insert the date and time into a Word document using Microsoft Word 2010. To do this, I'm going to be using Hotkey commands. Hotkey commands are functions that help us to work more efficiently and faster.
To begin, I'm going to press the Alt key which is next to the space bar. This brings up a selection of letters and numbers related to each section. I need the Insert section which is selected by using the N key.
When you press N, it moves into the Insert section. The subsections are also highlighted with a letter. I need the Date and Time subsection, so this is selected by using the D key.
After you press D, it brings up a box with all the different ways and styles you can insert the date and time.
Using the arrow keys, select which style you would like and press enter. This inputs the date. If you press enter to move down and want to insert the time, you would use the Alt key again, press N to get to the Insert section, then D for the date and time subsection, which brings up the box again.
Find the time in the list and select the style you would like. If you press enter again it inputs the time.
