by Allen Wyatt
(last updated June 21, 2014)

When you are customizing Word, you can assign certain styles, macros, and commands to different key assignments. Word allows you to print a list of what has been assigned to certain keys. To do this, follow these steps if you are using Word 2007:

  1. Press Ctrl+P. Word displays the Print dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Print dialog box.

  3. In the Print What box, select Key Assignments.
  4. Click on OK.

If you are using Word 2010 or Word 2013 the steps are slightly different:

  1. Press Ctrl+P. Word displays the File tab of the ribbon, with the Print option selected at the left side of the page.
  2. Click the first option under the Settings category and choose Key Assignments.
  3. Click the Print button at the top of the page.
